...or My Frauduation Speech

Dear Reader! As I have told you before, Sir Popper prepared an answer - and at last I have time to publish it. The topic is the same, the view is different. What if the most annoyed student, who also thinks he has got nothing from his degree, had the luck to speak up? What would you say? [15.04.2010] [2:02 a.m.] Popper Dear someone, I am not very good at writing – I do that relatively rare – but sometimes I just can’t help myself. Yesterday I saw a post from my group fellow...


Vivat Academia! or...

Dear Reader! I am terribly sorry for such a delay in my posts, which was caused by a progressive disorder (international?). The entry that you will find here is devoted mainly to the issue of getting a graduate degree in international relations (or a similar field). This post is written by Dr. Fox, while he was still a graduate student, so, please, be sceptic. As much as you can. P.S. I assume, Sir Popper will soon respond to it. [14.04.2010] [7:82 p.m.] Fox My honorable reader, I am graduating...


Si vis pacem, or is there universal peace?

Dear Reader! Sometimes a diseased mind cannot distinguish one from another, and here you will not find a conversation in its common sense, but something extremely odd.

The topic is war & peace, but main point is that everything is biased, and the way a person comprehends something (including such a positive idea of peace) depends mainly on one’s point of view, despite the message. Even if this person is good at reading between...


On multipolarity, unipolarity, whateverpolarity

Dear Reader! I would like to present to you a continuation of the previous post (in fact, an e-mail correspondence between the two minds) concerning the idea of 'polarity' and the use of other scientific terms in social science. From: To: Topic: your commentary Dear friend, Thank you again for your vast commentary. Although I can’t understand all your enmity towards political science, I appreciate your opinion....


On Bipolarity

Dear Reader! I have no intention to disappoint you or annoy you in case you were honestly looking for something about bipolarity in international relations, so this post will be dedicated, in some measure, to the well-known concept of ‘bipolarity’- and problems that lie beneath. Here you will find a blog post (within a blog post), written by Fox (not a doctor yet) and commented by Popper. [15.05.2010] [1:23 a.m.] Fox Hello, my honorable reader. I’m writing my master’s...
