Stanley Hoffmann seems to me to epitomize both styles in different aspects of his work. For Hoffmann, the empirical study of international relations must be essentially interpretive, using a deep knowledge of history, and context, to understand the significance of events, to sort out the important from the unimportant, the auguries of future changes from transient ephemera. For instance, in his compelling essay contrasting Rousseau and Kant, Hoffmann concludes with the claim that the statesmans difficulty is that he must play the game of international competition, from which he can escape only exceptionally, and at the same time he ought not to lose sight of Kants ideal.
