Toward Sustainably Critical International Theory

(p.225) 6 Conclusion
Recovering International Relations

Daniel J. Levine

Oxford University Press

The conclusion undertakes two key tasks. Surveying the case studies of the previous three chapters, it argues that reification can be understood as a coherent phenomenon, affecting the course of international theory across the decades. It then develops a series of concrete methodological research practices to check or critique it: operationalizing the notion of sustainable critique developed in the introduction. To that end, it uses the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as an example, showing how a sustainably critical research project would be undertaken in that context, and considering how such a project might contribute to both elite and popular policy discourses.

Keywords:   chastened reason, constellation, hermeneutic circle, hermeneutic sphere, Israeli-Palestinian conflict, methodology, Middle East Peace Process, Oslo Accords, sustainable critique
