Abstract: Martin Wight is considered one of the most influential theorists of the previous generation of International Relations and is a founder of the English School of International Relations. The conception and analysis of different state-systems was developed by him and showed the importance of world history to the study of international relations. He was also one of the main influences of Hedley Bull. Wight was from the realist tradition, but called it rationalistic. He considered the international behaviour of states and the relationship they conducted as a central theme. Wight argues that even if states are the main and immediate members of the international society, members are still individuals.
