Policy sciences had integrated interdisplinary knowledge and practice to study complex problems and apply rational decision making process in policy making in order to advance human dignity for all as their fundamental goal The study of the roots and evolution in terms of schools of thought and political ideology found that policy sciences were limited to the attainment of their fundamental goal due to the fact that mechanism of market rationality avails benefits to the minority rich people partially and firstly. Furthermore, interdisciplinary and rational decision-making approaches have been limitations in the real world situation.
