This chapter argues that the classical approach to the study of international relations is a craft discipline. It discusses topics such as erroneous conceptions of norms in social science, the tension between academic detachment and political engagement, the dialogical modality of international ethics, the ethics of practitioners, and the difference between practice and theory. It presents the stages of research involved in carrying out a classical normative inquiry into world politics.

Keywords:   classical approach, international relations, craft discipline, normative inquiry, world politics
