3 This scepticism is more fully articulated in Harré 1979. 18 Introduction 4 A few remarks on Marx’s understanding of ‘laws’. Although this is not the place to develop the argument further, I believe that, in his understanding of ‘laws’, Marx in fact conflated at least three very different meanings: (i) Laws in the sense of ‘natural laws’ of classical political theory, concerning particularly the labour theory of value (which was also the normative basis of his immanent critique of capitalism).

To clarify the possibilities, it is useful to distinguish between three Humes and two Kants. Hume believed in Newtonian science, but was in his own political analysis a classical political theorist. Hume2 demands the application of the experimental methods of Newtonian science to political science and international relations, whereas the Nietzschean Hume3 radicalises Hume’s scepticism and notion of passion. Similarly, there are also two Kants (a Nietzschean Kant would be a contradiction in terms).

Mainstream debates in international relations stem from a particular theory/problem-field solution set, or, in short, a problematic. 1 The presuppositions of the international problematic include: (1) a positivist interpretation of the new natural sciences, in particular Newton’s mechanics, and the related idea that it would also be possible to find similar simple formulas to describe the laws of human nature, as invariant operations of human understanding, or invariant behaviour, perhaps expressible in terms of differential calculus or other mathematical formula; (2) conceptions, opportunities and problems associated with the rise and expansion of capitalism; (3) the practical and theoretical problems stemming from the emergence and consolidation of the modern state; and (4) the problem of order, which emerged with (1)–(3) and the erosion of the authority of the Christian Church.
