Exopolitics: Polis, Ethnos, Cosmos : Classical Theories and Praxis of Foreign Affairs
The general purpose of this monograph to expose and explain the thoughts and practices of ancient Greeks regarding affairs or exopolitics, thus making a modest contribution in integrating classical political philosophy to modern international theory. It is our conviction here that in spite of the very little thought, which has apparently been given by philosophers to exopolitics, student of international relations can still benefit by the distilled ideas of the past. Even a modicum of the timeless ethical and empirical speculations of ancient philosophers can aid the contemporary student of international affairs in the search for standard and generalisation.
