We make these divisions, Cox wrote, in order to analyse the world and thus to produce practical knowledge of that world. It is not a stretch to suggest that the real social world of International Relations scholarship might also be approached as worthy of analysis and theory. Indeed, reflection on International Relations as theory appears in the field as part of the necessary and practical division of the complexity of the social and political world. Thus theory itself has long and often been treated as an object for theoretical reflection in International Relations. Indeed, the trope of problem-solving versus critical theory is asserted quite often in discussions of the status of theory in IR: for example, in A. McKeil ; in Robert W.
Robert W. It is common practice in academic disciplines to divide social reality into different spheres. This is a necessary exercise if practical knowledge is to be acquired. This implies that such a division cannot be sustained when the social reality changes. International Relations is a case in point.
Approaches to World Order
This article studies the thoughts of Robert W. Cox regarding civilization. In s, Cox proposed about political conflict in Quebec based on Canadian civilization, including the issues on race, language, and religion. He proposed the concept of civilization after cold war because he disagreed with Samuel Huntington and Francis Fukuyama for putting an emphasis on political conflicts over structural economic and social relations. Arguably, the civilization conflict was formed since the Westphalian inter-state system and established by the Western nations. Thus, American Hegemony aiming to dominate of a one civilization in the 21 st Century is still clashed with Chinese civilization in Global Capitalism and Islamic civilization to counter the Western civilization. By using terrorism, that might be called counter-hegemony.
History, Structure, and World Orders

His work has opened up spaces for the critical reexamination of world order structures. It has reclaimed the realm of the social for a field that proclaimed the distinctiveness and inexorability of geopolitical calculations and machinations and showed how global structures reflect not simply the power of states, but the aspirations of contending social forces. To study world order along these lines would require a historical approach; it would also require scholars to recognize that theories of world order are themselves necessarily informed by divergent social purposes.

Но вы добились своей цели, - словно со стороны услышала Сьюзан собственный голос, - Вы создали ТРАНСТЕКСТ. Казалось, Стратмор ее не слышал. - В последние несколько лет наша работа здесь, в агентстве, становилась все более трудной. Мы столкнулись с врагами, которые, как мне казалось, никогда не посмеют бросить нам вызов. Я говорю о наших собственных гражданах. О юристах, фанатичных борцах за гражданские права, о Фонде электронных границ - они все приняли в этом участие, но дело в другом. Дело в людях.
Похоже, ты облажался, приятель. - Но сейчас только без четверти.
- Кто теперь напишет материал для моей колонки. - Сэр, я… - За все сорок три года путешествий я никогда еще не оказывался в таком положении. Вы только посмотрите на эту палату.
