Abstract:  “Power” is the central concept of political sciences. However, in reality, the attributes of power are abstract and various; therefore, proposing a scientific concept on power has always been challenging. The article summarizes the preliminary understandings of power from the ancient era, the philosophical thinkings of power in the medieval era, and the scientific concepts of power in modern society. Robert Dahl (1915-2014) proposed a brief definition of power and conceptualized it with specific dimensions to be observed and measured in reality.

Keywords: power, politics, political power.
