Επιμνημόσυνο αφιέρωμα στον Καθηγητή δρ Kenneth Neal Waltz

Επιμνημόσυνο αφιέρωμα στον Καθηγητή δρ Kenneth Neal Waltz
Ο Μέγιστος θεωρητικός των σύγχρονων διεθνών σχέσεων, Καθηγητής δρ Kenneth Neal Waltz, ο οποίος τίμησε όσο κανείς άλλος και ανέδειξε τη διανόηση του πρώτου διεθνολόγου Θουκυδίδη, κοιμήθηκε στις 13 Μαΐου 2013. Ο Θεός να αναπαύει τη ψυχή του και να συνεχίζει να αποτελεί πρότυπο ερευνητή στις πολιτικές επιστήμες, ακαδημαΐκού διδασκάλου και ανθρώπου!

Kenneth Waltz and His Legacy The Man and The State of War
Robert Art and Robert Jervis May 22, 2013
Article Summary and Author Biography In his scholarship, Waltz asked the tough questions about the difficult and important issues. He was motivated by both theoretical and policy questions, the latter often setting the agenda for the former. He was intellectually courageous, usually staking out iconoclastic positions -- some of which were initially derided, many of which ended up becoming mainstream thinking. No matter what one’s theoretical persuasion, he was an intellectual force that had to be reckoned with.
