Benjamin Brice, "Lavenir de la guerre dans le monde du commerce: Raymond Aron face aux philosophies." Institut québécois des hautes études internationales Érudit, 2012.
The West, and especially Europe, often understands globalization as a new process that will eventually challenge the domination of traditional politics. This paper will attempt to question the idea of a gradual disappearance of war in human affairs, using Raymond Aron’s thoughts on the subject. In the first part we will see how the concepts of “procès” (process) and “drame” (drama) provide a method to analyze historical developments. Then, in a second part, we will apply such concepts to three general causes of conflict (namely passions, economic interests and principles) to show that pacifistic hopes must be refrained. Even the pacification in Europe does not mean an end of war.
