The Concept of Politics in the Realist Tradition of the Theory of International Relations. Juraj Laššuth Abstract: Aim of this thesis is a reconstruction of the notion of politics in the school of classical realism in Theory of International Relations, using the texts of Hans Morgenthau primarily.

Four images of the relations between anthropology and the evaluation of political sphere are identified and compared ("emacipation", "gay politics", "katechon" and "circles and antinomies") - the final one will be shown as connected with the notion of Hans Morgenthau's realism.

Political sphere, defined according "the second principle of realism" by interest defined in terms of power, is a place, where morally ambivalent logic of power stands as the reason of acting. Second chapter addresses Morgenthau's notion of political science by comparing it with the project of Weberian social science, analyses its reason, ethos, complicated relations with its subject, dilemmas which...

Nevertheless, there is an intuition, that there is some kind of politics and political praxis in the structures of EU. The question is, where we can find the praxis and how it looks like. Firstly, a characteristics of the political were found, according to the works of the classical theoreticians of political praxis, which were compared with governance in EU. Consequently, a tendency in politization of institutions an topics in European level was found, on the basis of the reflection on debates about democratic deficit in EU (which is also about deficit of politics in EU). Signs of political behavior were found in politization of European Parliament - in creation of robust political parties, party politics and system of parties, whose main axis of cleavage is leftist-rightist one. This cleavege has implication on choosing president of the...
