How do these differ: Politics vs Political Science vs Political Philosophy vs Political Theory?

I've Googled several sources that compare two of these, but none that contrast all four:1. This [Reddit thread]( contrasts `Political Philosophy` with `Political Theory`.2. This [Quora]( thread contrasts `Political Science` with `Political Philosophy`.3. This [Researchgate]( thread compares `Political Theory` and `Political Thought`. I haven't asked about the latter, as it looks to be a rarer term.
