The series of ontological commitments about the individual, the state, and the nature of international politics contained in these assumptions is also coextensive, though, with a claim to universality that has equally been constitutive of the discipline itself and of the image it has constructed of its object of study. Hobbes’ initial postulates about the rationality of all human beings, where “every one is governed by his own Reason,” and the confrontation of rationality with the “Warre of every one against everyone,” are introduced as matters of universal principle.
It is only an overarching Competing Universals: Realism 29 structure, standing above and separately from individual will – the Leviathan that emerges in opposition to the state of nature where life would always stay “brutish and short”25 – that can resolve the issue of violence. In fact, it is through the very surrender to that structure that individuals can move away from violence. This logic establishes, at a second level, the role of the state as the primordial form of delineation of politics.
The forms that international life adopts in different circumstances, the varying agendas and perspectives of those who participate in this life or comment on it, will not change them. The author who most often invokes these series of assumptions – and the claims to universality they comprise – in order to construct his understanding of the nature of international politics is, of course, Kenneth Waltz. Indeed, his most accomplished reprise of these themes in his classic Theory of International Politics32 has now not only helped assemble a large part of the vocabulary most widely employed today to discuss international affairs, it has also instilled in those students, academics, and policy makers who draw on that vocabulary a belief that it can describe the sheer totality of international politics.
