For example, that it says too much and too little at the same time: on the one hand, it is too rigid for a great thinker to fall into a single tradition, while, on the other, it does not cover the whole variety of possible positions. As we will see, on the one hand, it is extremely problematic to lock an author such as Kant into the revolutionist tradition, given his lack of indulgence towards rapid forms of political change. On the other hand, important international relations theories, such as those deriving from Marx or nevertheless focusing on the international political economy, plus those of postmodernist inspiration, not to speak of international relations gender theories, are difficult to place within this tripartition.
In classical law, the term ‘person’ originally indicated the theatrical mask, by extension going on to mean the role impersonated by the actor (Cotta 1983). 26 By its very nature, the task of the theatrical mask is to conceal the differences between those wearing it. A decisive contribution to the development of the modern concept of the juridical personality came from canon law. Medieval legal science was given the task of giving a theoretical form to a concept which in reality appeared to have many facets: monasteries, churches, religious confraternities and charitable institutions made it necessary to model a concept that gave the full idea of an ideal institution, with a distinct patrimony from the people that formed the material substratum (Campitelli 1983).
A point of reference can be the definition given by Suganami, according to which the domestic analogy is ‘presumptive reasoning (or a line of argument embodying such reasoning) about international relations based on the assumption that since domestic and international phenomena are similar in a number of respects, a given proposition which holds true domestically, but whose validity is as yet uncertain internationally, will also hold true internationally’ (Suganami 1989: 24). A line of argument based on the domestic analogy therefore assumes that there are similarities between the two spheres, or rather, propositions that are valid for both; given these similarities, it is considered legitimate to conclude that a certain proposition, whose validity is only proven in the domestic sphere, will probably also be valid on an international level.
