In exploring the connections between international relations and history, we find a link that contributes to the redefinition of the discipline itself. In fact, international relations as a rational discourse on one aspect of the social sphere constitutes a historical object in itself. The aim of the article is to sitĂșate IR on its historical voyage in order to identify the development of three different international-system models throughout the course of the past three centuries. This overview leads us from a history between nations to a world history and, finally, to a global history, the nature of which allows us to outline certain coordinates in the international scenario at the dawn of the 21st century and indicate the elements that make the international idea lose its specificity and confronts us with the challenge of reformulating our own understanding of today's world.
