International Relations, Security and Jeremy Bentham PDF

Gunhild Hoogensen

The first comprehensive presentation and discussion of Jeremy Benthams contributions to international relations theory. Bentham is best known amongst political theory scholars as most of his brilliant work addresses legal theory, reform, and the ideal relationship between the governors and the governed. This new text rectifies many of the erroneous assumptions made about Benthams contributions to the field, and critically examines his place within the confines of the liberal theoretical tradition, arguing that Benthams preoccupation with security resulted in often conflicting and inconsistent ideas about the conduct of nations in the international realm. International relations scholars have long needed clarification and an accurate presentation of Benthams work, but additionally, his constant struggle to ensure security of expectation resulted in a striking ambivalence about world politics and how states ought to engage them. Benthams work was pivotal to the development of the international climate we now face - he coined the word international - and was one of the first thinkers to consider the globalized community that we see before us.
He also struggled, sometimes in vain, to reconcile such a globalized community with the need to ensure security. His struggle was essentially no different than that facing international relations scholars today. Within the context of Benthams work, this book also addresses the broader context of international relations theory itself, and demonstrates the strengths and weaknesses of the international relations theory traditions, in particular, liberalism and realism. This book will be of strong interest to students and scholars of international relations and political theory.
