grand strategy

Epistemologically, the source of all erroneous views on war lies in idealist and mechanistic tendencies...people with such tendencies are subjective and one-sided in their approach to problems. They indulge in groundless and purely subjective talk, basing themselves upon a single aspect or temporary manifestation and magnify it with similar subjectivity into the whole of the problem...only by opposing idealistic and mechanistic tendencies and taking an objective all-sided view in making a study of war can we draw correct conclusions on the question of war.
