About this book

Introduction

This book provides an overview of the entire discipline of world affairs in a way that makes immediate sense, i.e. systematic, cogent and comprehensive. It is also a critique of the limits that rationalism sets on how we know world affairs, showing how we might transcend these limits by augmenting rationalist research with non-rationalist techniques. It should appeal to anyone interest in why analysts so often seem to explain world affairs inaccurately and misunderstand what these affairs mean.
