The Problem of Scientific Progress and Major Schools of Thought in Contemporary International Politics Theory
This article represents a preliminary attempt at evaluating major theories of or approaches to international relations.

In so doing, it not only clarifies the key variables of their causal connections within, and thus the strengths and weaknesses of each of the major theoretical works, but also unravels the central underlying, if not entirely value-free, assumptions of those purported theories.
