Annual Colloquium, National Security Studies Institute, an Intelligence Community Center for Academic Excellence
March 23-24, 2017
There are theoretical foundations and models to understand the functioning and effects of intelligence (broadly defined). To argue that there is nothing in this regard shows a lack of creativity. It is more a case that the IR community does not engage with or expand upon those existing ideas while the practitioner and historical communities see no need to dwell upon creating theory for an intrinsically practical activity.
I do not expect to have a strong theoretical foundation for the study either of intelligence or of major war any time soon. This may disturb political scientists, but I am a historian.
I am happy to use a strong theoretical foundation if one is available for something I am studying, but I regard this as a rare luxury. It is not something I can expect.
