Lebow, Richard N. (2009) Constitutive causality: imagined spaces and political practices. Millennium - journal of international studies, 38 (2). pp. 211-239. ISSN 0305-8298
I explore alternate meanings of causation and the generic ways in which constitution can have causal consequences. I address the question of constitutive causality in the context of the debate about the rise of the territorial state. I evaluate claims linking its emergence and success to the prior development of linear perspective. To do this, I compare the spatial revolution that took place in the Renaissance with the one that began in the 19th century.
