Political science is typically considered an empirical science; that is, it builds its conclusions upon data analysis. However, some studies within the field of political science concerns normative questions and cannot use empirical data in the same way as the empirical sciences but must instead rely on evaluative reasoning. This article proposes a systematic way of thinking about the method of normative political science. It elaborates upon the central elements of this method and argues that, contrary to what one might think, the method of normative political science is similar to that of mainstream political science in many respects.
