Entire article belongs in "History of Political Philosophy"[edit]

I do not see how the "history of political thinking" is, or should be, separate from the "history of political philosophy (aka political theory)". This should be obvious from the fact that, as of this writing each section references either "political philosophy" or "theory". Absent any evidence to the contrary, I would recommend this article should be deleted and its contents collapsed into "history of political philosophy". MrLou (talk) 02:42, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

History of political philosophy is a disambiguation page that links here, so I'm not quite sure what you're getting at -- are you asking to move the page? In academia this discipline is usually known as "history of political thought". --Tyrannus Mundi (talk) 15:57, 9 June 2012 (UTC)
