Abstract

[Autom. eng. transl.] In the intellectual history of the twentieth century, the English School represents a very heterodox view of the more consolidated approaches to international studies. Its members - including Martin Wight, Hedley Bull and Herbert Butterfield - explain the dynamics of relations between states during the modern and contemporary era using the concept of "international society". According to these scholars, a condition of anarchy continues to persist, but international politics cannot be reduced to an indiscriminate bellum omnium contra omnes. In their eyes, international society appears instead to be characterized by a situation of relative sociability, and is also based on custom and institutions. Using the essential contribution offered by history, philosophy and law, the authors of the English School thus offer a valid instrument with which to interpret international politics as realistically as possible.
