O N T H E S TAT E O F T H E D I S C I P L I N E Ian Shapiro I will not comment at any length on the thoughtful and erudite essays by John Gunnell and Michael J. Shapiro, though I should correct two misconceptions in what Gunnell has written. I am content to be characterized by him as belonging to a loyal opposition within political science, but I fail to see why this makes me a member of "the very orthodoxy" I criticize. Both Gunnell and Russell Hardin write as though the object of my criticism in Flight is a discipline or several disciplines. What I criticize is the method-driven research practices that have been influential in many of the human sciences over the past several decades, not the disciplines themselves. It would not be a plausible criticism to claim that my own research is method-driven, which Gunnell's hoist-on-his-own-petard line of argument would seem to imply. My substantive work on the dynamics of transition negotiations in South Africa, the Middle East, and Northern Ireland, on justice in civil institutions, on the repeal of the estate tax, and on U.S. national security
