Militaryzm – ujęcie teoretyczne

Natalia Olszanecka



While an increasing number of researchers develop an interest in security studies, the problem of militarism is systematically overlooked in scientific publications. In the Polish discourse, this phenomenon is most often identified with ideology or the military build-ups. However, these are not the only existing theoretical approaches of the militarism phenomenon. This article aims to fill a certain gap in theoretical considerations on this subject and to present the most important theoretical perspectives of militarism and also its typology. The main research problem is to find an answer to the question: how is militarism understood today?
