CABRERA GARCIA, Ernesto. A typology of political realism: Approach from the conceptual analysis. Sig. Fil [online]. 2014, vol.16, n.31, pp.125-155. ISSN 1665-1324.

The proposal of this article is to show the conceptual complexity of political realism. Through an analysis of its extensive meaning, I pretend to determine a typological classification to sort the main theses formulated by the authors link usually to this modality of political thinking. The distinction between three modes of political realism: methodological, ontological and practical, allows me to evade the reductions and mystifications that frequently appears when we try to define concepts like this. This work stands in the perspective of analytical models and afterwards it will be contrasted with the point of view developed by conceptual history.

Keywords : methodological realism; ontological realism; practical realism; ideal type; typology.
