The state of nature, as Gregory S. Kavka notes, is a “relational concept”28 . It speaks to the fact that the risk of violence in society does not rest with what one does, but much more with what others choose to do – I may act with reason, but others can still use violence against me. The “war of all against all” is rooted in something that escapes the control of any one individual and is much more closely tied to the sort of context in which they all have to evolve. The route out of the state of nature, then, is to change that context and to create a new social institution, able to have power over all individuals.

Machiavelli is “the first important realist,” Carr argues, because the three essential tenets in [his] doctrine are the foundation-stones of the realist philosophy.
