- Jörg Friedrichs & Friedrich Kratochwil, On Acting and Knowing.This article moves from deconstruction to reconstruction in epistemology and research methodology. To begin with, we show why many social scientists are mistaken in their hope to obtain warranted knowledge in practical matters through standard social scientific methodologies. We do so by subjecting two versions of the belief in traditional epistemological projects to critical scrutiny.

When war is conceived as the authentic ontology of States’ relations, peace is an “empty” space incapable to offer any standpoint. The last decades developments show the “new” (...)
