Summary/Abstract: The article presents a brief survey of selected trends observable within political science in the Czech Republic and offers a tentative interpretation of some major features that can be seen as typical for the current state of the field. However, the article is not intended as a comprehensive analysis; rather, it is meant to open up a discussion related to self-perceptions in Czech political science, and their relation to reality. Issues like methodological, research and teaching foci are all elaborated here, and serve to highlight the possible weaknesses and benefits of Czech political science, thus claiming a space for further, more substantial research. In this sense, the article should be understood as an attempt to make Czech political science launch a process of its own self-definition and self-identification.
