About this product
- DescriptionTheories on the origins of war are often based on the premise that the rational actor is in pursuit of material satisfaction, such as the quest for power or for wealth. These perspectives disregard the need for homo symbolicus -- meaning the preservation of a positive self-image for both emotional and instrumental reasons. A good reputation ensures authority and material resources. Non-recognition can be as much as an explanation of war as that of other explicative 'variables'. The two empirical studies examining the role of n-recognition in great power conflicts and in international crises demonstrate the value of this symbolic approach.
