Notes for a genealogy of global war. From « just war » to the crisis of Westphalian system - Since the first Gulf War (1990-91) the unfinished transition to a new world order seems to have been strongly influenced by those « new wars » whose impact was deemed to be constitutive. On the background of an imperial project which has grown harsher after the New Economy crisis in 2000 and the 9/11 terrorist attacks, it appears that we have gone back to the old war discourses, including the « just war » one. The article reconstructs the history of the latter, analyzing its origin, appearance, logic and decline, considering some crucial issues of Middle Ages and modern thought. The aim of the author is to shed light on some recurring discursive strategies which, through time, have legitimized the worst kind of power politics, also creating some heavy « truth effects » on western people.)" />
