Realism and Neorealism: An Investigative Overview

Publiceringsår: 2010
Språk: Engelska
Sidor: 4
Dokumenttyp: Rapport
Förlag: E-International Relations (e-IR)


Realist arguments are a combination of two discrete, though often intersecting, literatures. The first emerging from the works of classical realists such as Thucydides and Machiavelli, and the second spreading across the history of Western philosophy. One of the most significant aspects of realism is its use of historical evidence, as if one can detect a timeless wisdom of world politics centred upon the principles of realpolitik.
