Abstract

The involvement of European states in a war conducted on European territory at the end of the twentieth century has had significant repercussions in social theory, and in particular in the social theory of modernity. On the one hand, it has reminded social theorists of the fact that war and violence have by and large been neglected in the theorizing of modernity - despite some previous attempts to correct the dominant image of largely peaceful processes of modernization and democratization. On the other hand, the war has provoked politico-intellectual interventions of a breadth not witnessed for a considerable period. Significantly, the positions on the NATO intervention into the conflicts in Yugoslavia cut across the apparently firmly established boundaries of intellectual debate.
