This article was made after reading the monograph of Professor Richard Skarzynski ‘Anarchy and polycentrism. Elements of the theory of international relations’. The author put in his book the question: ‘Is the theory of international law characterized by many contradictions or even erroneous propositions, because erroneous perception of internationally reality by its creators?’. Exemplification of contrary assertions of empirical experience in international law is, for example, the principle of equality of states. The doctrine of international law increasingly recognizes that the development of international law – by agreement or law-making activities of bodies such as international organizations – the principle of equality of states does not reflect the actual relationship. Skarzyński indicates that the consensus in international relations is complicated by the fact that there is no uniform concept of a peaceful arrangement of these relations, as there is no compatible conception of the state, nation, and the different civilizations use the multiple concepts and are based on different values. It seems that apart from differences of definition, different ideas of political and social institutions in a polycentric world, particularly troublesome is the inability to develop a global ethics. Ethics is after all a factor in determining the final shape of legal norms. The organization of the human species implies a lack of uniformity of international law. Uniformity can at best be partial and bottom-up, for example by agreement of the Member Agreement, or from above, i.e., imposed by force by other countries.
