Plato, in the Theaetetus and the Sophist, distinguished the mode of meaning of nouns from that of verbs. It is because these questions are raised by the claims about sovereignty that lie at the heart of the post-Westphalian model that sover- eignty has become a central organizing concept of politi- cal philosophy—a concept the analysis of which, as Benn said, brings one into contact with nearly all the major problems of the discipline.

Rather, each of his three enlightenment experiences came in con- nection with the contemplation of a passage in a Bud- dhist text. Subscribing to the still little known and highly controversial Copernican theory, he adhered to the principle that all is relative in the universe and attacked religious and philosophical anthropocentrism. By it, humanity came to know the one ultimate truth about the universe.
