Routledge, 2002 - 267pages

The book begins with a critical genealogy of the emergence of the international relations problematic--the irrealist foundations of which ere laid down by David Hume and Immanuel Kant. After revealing the ontological and epistemological underpinnings of the critical realist alternative, it explores the future role of critical realism in the construction of non-violent and democratic world politics, which overcomes the Kantian antimonies and dilemmas of the international problematic.
