The World Context and the End of Fatalism

The World Context and the End of Fatalism

(p.63) 3 The World Context and the End of Fatalism
The Origins of War Prevention

Martin Ceadel

Oxford University Press

Fatalism faded, albeit at different rates, and gave way to peace-or-war debates in all advanced countries. This transformation was driven by changes in world context — both in the international system and in transnational influences common to all countries. This chapter identifies the point at which modern peace-or-war ideas emerged, examining the international-systemic and transnational factors which contributed to this, and then shows how these same factors continued to exert a structural effect on the post-fatalist debate.

Keywords:   fatalism, peace-or-war debates, peace, war, international relations
