Systems Waltz Brocker I 629
System/System Theory/Waltz: Waltz describes his own theory as systems theory. DüsbergVsWaltz: rightly pointed out that Waltz only refers to an own area (international politics), which has an inner structure (a structure), which influences the behaviour of the parts. (1) Waltz knows no "outside world" (environment) as they are thematized by Talcott Parsons or Niklas Luhmann.
Brocker I 630
Structure/Waltz: exists by the arrangement of the parts in the system and by the principle of order of these parts. (2) Parts/"units"/Waltz: are separate units within the system that are connected by constant actions. The most important units of his theory are states that form sovereign units. See Sovereignty/Waltz, States/Waltz.
