Scholars have pointed to the fact that human beings are directly or indirectly responsible for the struggles and volatility inherent in the international system. Human nature as a direct consequence of conflicts in the society has been an issue under scrutiny for decades. This text puts into perspective the state of the international system and components responsible for conflicts.
Hans Morgenthau (3) provides critical views concerning the struggle for power and peace in the international system. Morgenthau presents two theories that tend to explain the tendency for conflicts in the world. Morgenthau underscores the fact the nature of international politics is directly correlated to human nature. Two theories present perspectives on the issues of human nature and nature politics. A school of thought notes that human nature is great though it blames the society for non-functionality. Secondly, the society is noted as being imperfect effectively affecting human nature.
The variables exposing the facts are limited to individual behavior, although Morgenthau ties the nature of politics to human nature and society (Morgenthaun 24). For instance, human beings have different behaviors depending on the mode of socialization. Human beings are not homogenous in their thoughts and deeds to the extent that they cannot be said to be bound by good moral tendencies. The socialization process of a human being and the inherent idiosyncratic variables determines how a person relates to other people. For instance, drafting a foreign policy document may be done by individuals are driven by their interest which can even be selfish.
The agenda of formulating policies must be checked against the guiding principles of moral behavior. In addition, the realist argument that society influences the behavior of people holds a significant amount of truth (Morgenthaun 98). Societies have norms, rules and regulations that determine peoples relationship. If a society is not

He observes that when we look back over historical writings from around the world we can see that they are all similar in the way that they approach the task but that there are also many differences. Each historian writes from a particular cultural perspective, and aims to meet the expectations of a particular audience.
Traditionally, this was a common approach, and an understanding of history was made up of a whole collection of disconnected smaller scale histories. Recently, however, there have been attempts to look at history on a larger scale, and indeed to trace wider reaching effects as they happen.
There are eight chapters divided into three main themes sections and it is interesting that he repeats the title “strategy and economics” in each of the three section headings. This is a somewhat misleading hint, because in fact what his analysis shows is that very often the great powers lack strategy, and seem to be on a pre-determined curve of rise, pause and fall which has little to do with their own strategy.
Its modest title A Study of History belies its huge ambition. Toynbee devoted most of his working life to this task and in the end it amounted to 12 large volumes published between 1934 and 1961. The structure that Toynbee chooses for his analysis is that of the civilization, and he makes a clear distinction between this and smaller societies which do not develop to the size and complexity of a civilization.
The rest of the hospitals are operated by profit-making organizations. Most of the US population is insured either by their family members or their own insurance schemes. Nevertheless, there are people who lack insurance cover despite the government’s provision of insurance for employees in the public sector.
Particularly focusing on my project, we will see an adversarial (or mostly seems that way) interaction between practitioners/theorists. My project will focus on the work titled, Ducks and Decoration by Denis Scott Brown and Robert Venturi. The vastness of the
