Guerra e sovranità nella relazione fra Stati. Variazioni su alcune pagine hegeliane
Abstract: War and Sovereignty in the Relationship between States. Variations on Some Hegelian Pages.
The Author reconstructs the genesis of the absolute power in the medieval formulation superiorem non recognoscens. The theme of recognition represents the key to understanding the sovereignty-war binomial in Hegelian thought. The central nucleus of the proposition is identified in the transfiguration of war as a theoretical and therefore gnoseological category. The very relationship between states thus becomes a struggle for recognition.
