As a social action, politics is one of the traditional areas of study. By overlooking the realities and practical necessities, Dogmatic interpretation of politics ignores the interference of political science in decision-making. In contrast, the anti-fundamental interpretation of politics focuses more on the discourse of negation and is uncertain in the analysis. So, the main question of the paper is to analyze the dysfunction of political science in Iran. Policy blindness, lack of relation with policymaking and the political system, value- burden orientation, paradoxical and politicization of political science, lack of scientific perspective toward the nature of political science, and lack of transparency of the foundation of political science in Iran have led to the unresponsiveness of political science to social realities. So, inspired by the static face of political science and dynamism of politics, this paper will test the hypothesis based on the comparative-developmental theories and the analytic-documentary method at the micro, meso, and macro levels. The findings show that the methodological, epistemological and ontological challenges of the political science in Iran have prevented it to be a policy-maker science for power-holders and politicians.
