Theorising within the American ‚discipline‘ of International Relations has
been plagued by a rather severe intellectual crisis. Theorists have meant
that they need to emulate the natural sciences of the eighteenth and
nineteenth centuries in outlook and argumentative style. But this has
destroyed much awareness for the ’nature‘ of modern international
relations as a dynamically evolving historical process. This book seeks to
overcome the vicissitudes of mainstream theorising by abandoning the
discipline’s scientism and by adopting a stance that is more in tune with
the standards of modern social science.

Günther Auth teaches International Relations at the
Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich and works, inter alia, as an
independent analyst/commentator of global politics.
