How does the difference in the nature of the violence, which underlies the international politics of the non-Western world, lead, for instance, to dissimilar notions of rational and irrational violence? How does this destabilize both realism and the literature that has grown in reaction to realist tenets about violence and rationality? How can the development of international studies, finally, take into account all these problems? The other central source of universalist claims in international studies must be considered as well, however, before these questions are considered in detail.
The story they tell is such that it can only lead them to the conclusions, and to the universalist worldview, contained in Machiavelli’s writings. For instance, Morgenthau’s Politics Among Nations,8 the cornerstone of post–World War II realism and the obligatory textbook for all students in international politics, is very much a case in point. The beginning of the argument put forth in the book is in parallel with the logic advanced by 24 How Do We Think about Global Politics? Machiavelli. 10 It is the movement from the “untamed” sway of violence, which “finds its laws in nothing but its own strength,” to the “disciplined” use of force that marks the emergence of political power: Political power, however, must be distinguished from force in the sense of the actual exercise of physical violence.
The key point that needs to be made at this stage, however, is that realism always remains a language of universals. Its core assumption is that it speaks to the very nature of international politics, all the time and everywhere. This is why, as will be demonstrated later on, the critiques of realism can assume that their response to this literature also speaks to the nature of international relations as such, and thus does not require further nuances of context in dealing with the character of international politics in the non-Western world.
