Abstract: Policy Sciences is obviously important to promote the modernization of national governance.This article respectively discusses some issues from three perspectives of the Policy Sciences,that is, "two kinds of knowledge",the policy process and policy analysis methods.Policy Sciences initially proposes the "two kinds of knowledge" as the grand discipline task,but it has not been able to form a unified paradigm,which results in a vague disciplinary boundaries,the entangling in the science-oriented and customeroriented,and the actual " dichotomy" existing between the Policy Sciences and other public policy oriented research.Providing a simplified description or interpretation of policy processes,policy stages framework and policy network framework made only small steps for improving policy systems and promoting rationality of public decisions.Without considering the values,history and resources etc.,there is still asymmetry between knowledge and action in the existing policy analysis method.Therefore,the paper concludes with a brief discussion of the relationship between Policy Sciences and Public Management,and puts forward the future direction of tools-oriented perspectives and big data application.
