Abstract

The essay contrasts two approaches to the psychology of strategic and diplomatic behavior: the traditionalist and the radical approaches. They differ over what it is possible to accomplish in international affairs. One approach is analytic, close to the viewpoint of the States, and derived from the specific logic of international politics. The radicals' approach is therapeutic, critical of the States, and often derived from individual psychology and pathology. The essay emphasizes the weaknesses of the radical approach but also suggests an agenda for research and action on which both groups could cooperate.
