Political realism and the strange death of human nature -- Classical realism on human nature and Freud -- The human nature of post-classical realism -- Human nature and the political : criticism and countercriticism -- Human nature, the political, and the virtues of Freudian man -- Resurrecting the realist man, Freud, and human nature
In the tradition of political realism, this book provides an important reappraisal of the concept of human nature in contemporary realist international-political theory. With special reference to the anthropology of Sigmund Freud, a consequential yet terribly neglected and underestimated thinker in International Relations, Schuett demonstrates that analytical and normative theorizing of all international-political reality, its nature, tragedies, and potentialities, requires a sophisticated theory of human nature. Developing a Freudian philosophical anthropology for political realism, he argues for the careful resurrection of the concept of human nature in the wider study of international relations
