Example text

But basing his theory on "concrete reality" will not allow Waltz to "see" the structure that will provide his theory with sufficient explanatory power: In reality, everything is related to everything else, and one domain cannot be separated from others. Theory isolates one realm from all others in order to deal with it intellectually. To isolate a realm is a precondition to developing a theory that will explain what goes on within it ... 8 Waltz's claim about interrelatedness could be seen as an opening for an ecological analysis of international politics—interrelatedness being one of the principal elements of ecology.

DRAWING THE BOUNDARIES OF THE (INTER)STATE In considering the structure of international politics as set out by Waltz, it is important to pay attention to the lines within his text, to become intimate with these boundaries. How have they been drawn? Where have they been drawn? How are they used? These questions, it seems to me, ought to guide one's reading of Waltz's texts. The units of Waltz's system created by the drawing of these lines must be considered to be as important as the system itself.
