The Absolutist State as an Organization In terms of the development of a novel
type of reflexively monitored state system, then, absolutism began to prise open
the discontinuities that separate the modern world from prior epochs. Absolutism
still retained large elements of the feudal order that preceded it, and was more
different from the nation-state system that was its heir than it is from feudalism. If I
cannot agree with Anderson's assessment that “In diplomacy . . . the index of

Violence was taken up and centralised in an institution and identified with power,
absolutist power, the power of the absolutist monarch and state. In a sense,
violence was institutionally transformed. Violence could be accessed and
employed only in certain regulated and controlled ways (Elias 1982, 235-40;
Willke 1992, 219), for instance, through state and military decisions. Since the
absolutist state through raison d'Etat retained arbitrary disposal over the law,
however, the latter did ...

The absolutist model of rule was crucial in the process of state formation as on
the one hand, it, was responsible for articulating the state as a 'pre-eminent
bordered power container' (Giddens 1985: 291) able to monopolise and
legitimise the use of violence within its territory, and, on the other hand, it
unwittingly created a public sphere in its pursuit of legitimacy. As Poggi (1978: 83
) argues: 'The very existence of a public realm was largely the consequence of
the absolutist state's ...

Absolutist diplomacy was only a continuation of predatory warfare in which
diplomats used military threats and pleaded strategic advantage so as to arrange
marriages that brought land and revenues to the absolutist state. Related to ''
predatory warfare'' but less ongoing and connected with the routine reproduction
of states is the violence associated with the mass migration of people. Vo

Or at least by monarchs who tried to be as absolute as they could, only granting a
share in power to the aristocracy and the rising middle classes when they had to,
or as suited their convenience.”61 The third is the development of modern
science, to which Rawls devotes three sentences. Despite identifying these three
factors, Rawls continues on to discuss the Reformation alone, and says not
another word about the other two. The two sentences on the rise of the absolutist
state are ...

It can coexist with various degrees of freedom and rights vis-à-vis the state. Given
the experience of civil war, of course, it was widely considered that internal peace
could not be restored by simply renouncing violence. All other rights, so it
seemed, had to be relinquished, too, for the sake of the one supreme good: the
security of life and of property. This led to the emergence of the absolutist state.
The absolutist state, however, was by no means a necessary consequence of the

It has been seen how the great crisis which struck the European economies in
