Gabriel Jiménez-Peña

En este escrito, en primer lugar, se busca determinar qué puntos de vista de determinados autores han sido asociados en las Relaciones Internacionales (RRII) con la categoría de “críticos” y por qué razones. En segundo lugar, se busca mostrar que hay diferencias no solo de matiz, sino de fondo entre los diferentes enfoques “críticos”, pero también dentro de ellos. Finalmente, se concluye explorando las razones plausibles por las cuales esta clasificación entre teorías puede ser o no de utilidad actual en las RRII, al argüir que hay un sentido en el que dicho concepto abarcador es útil, pero otro en el que promueve la confusión y las generalizaciones espurias.
