'Leo Strauss: Man of Peace'

Speaker: Rob Howse (NYU)

Venue:Manor Road Building, Seminar Room G

CIS Event

Discussants:    Janalee Cherneski (DPIR, University of Oxford), Aggie Hirst (City University London) and Eno Trimcev (Leuphana University)

Chair:                Kalypso Nicolaïdis (St Antony’s College, University of Oxford)

Leo Strauss: Man of Peace provides the first comprehensive analysis of Leo Strauss's writings on political violence, considering also what he taught in the classroom on this subject. In stark contrast to popular perception, Strauss emerges as a man of peace, favourably disposed to international law and sceptical of imperialism – a critic of radical ideologies (right and left) who warns of the dangers to free thought and civil society when philosophers and intellectuals ally themselves with movements that advocate violence.

'A new approach to the ‘history problem’ in Northeast Asia's international relations'

Speaker: Barry Buzan (LSE) and Evelyn Goh (ANU)

Venue:Manor Road Building, Seminar Room C

CIS EVENT

Bitterly contested memories of war, colonisation and empire among Japan, China and Korea have increasingly threatened regional order and security over the past three decades. In Sino-Japanese relations, identity, territory and power pull together in a particularly lethal direction, generating dangerous tensions in both geopolitical and memory rivalries. Buzan and Goh explore a new approach to dealing with this history problem, first, by constructing a more balanced and global view of the history, and second, building on this, to sketch out the possibilities for a great power bargain. Buzan puts Northeast Asia’s history since 1840 into both a world historical and a systematic normative context, exposing the parochial nature of the history debate in relation to what is a bigger shared story. Arguing that regional order will ultimately depend upon these two East Asian great powers, Goh explores the identity issues, regional and global roles and spheres of influence, rights to possess certain kinds of armaments, and modes of management and security cooperation that might underpin a ‘great power bargain’ between China and Japan.
