Abstract: We think we know what we know, and we even think we know what it is that we need to know. But how do we know what we don’t know we need to know? Our operating environment is simply too complex for us to anticipate all that we must understand and know. So

Abstract: The importance of the mathematical instrument trade in England around 1600 has recently been recognised. This was a era of vibrant commerce and innovation in instrument design. My research explores the interaction between publishing and instrument-making in two ways: first, through the complex interaction between printing, advertising and engraving; second, through the consideration of texts as instruments, and the attempt to grasp how both books and instruments were used. The evidence here is often slim: the words of the texts themselves are only clues to the ways any given instrument was used, and likewise it is often unclear if the books and the problems they set were ends in themselves, or if they pointed to actual use. Here I will develop the category of ‘instrumental knowledge’ – whereby information was acquired and conveyed through the manipulation of dials, alidades and sliding scales – in a discussion of the astronomical quadrant.

Abstract: Most IR textbooks discuss the so-called First Debate in IR, between Realism and Idealism. Though the score was settled to the advantage of Realism, the contrast between the two isms continues to play a dominant role in the evaluation of practical politics and academic debates. This paper will argue that these debates are not merely highly normative, but are essentially flawed because the notions of realism and idealism form not a true dichotomy. The true opposite of idealism is fatalism; the true opposite of realism is 'irrealism'. This will be developed into a quadrant: Idealism and Fatalism exclude each other, but Idealism can lead to Irrealism; Realism and Irrealism exclude each other, but Realism can lead to Fatalism. Normative debates and policy evaluations then have to focus on the diagonal between Idealism and Realism. To support this approach, some of the past discussions about Realism vs Idealism (especially E.H. Carr versus Norman Angell) will be re-evaluated.
