Iver B. Neumann calls for a natural sciences’ way of thinking to be embraced by political science, specifically in studies of diplomacy. Biological evolution may be understood as humans’ long-term selection of some biological functions over others, eventually leading to social change. According to Neumann, the same principle applies to diplomacy: social evolution, understood as humans’ long-term selection of some social functions over others, eventually leads to political change, including changes in diplomacy.
