Liane continues her conversation from last week with Atlantic Monthly Correspondent Robert Kaplan about his new book Warrior Politics: Why Leadership Demands a Pagan Ethos (Random House; ISBN: 0375505636). While last week's discussion focused on the use of history in devising foreign policy, this week Kaplan looks at the political use of philosophers, like Machiavelli, Hobbes and Kant.
