Second, the distinction between ‘‘subjectivity’’ and ‘‘subject-positions’’ resolves the levels-of-analysis problem in international relations. That social actors are speaking actors applies equally to individuals and corporate actors, to nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) as well as states. A signiﬁcant advantage of a discourse perspective is that it enables the enquiry to travel the full length of the levels-of-analysis spectrum, from the individual to the state level. Individuals, NGOs, states, are all potentially the subjects (the I/we) of a discourse.
There it examines the relationships between the state, science, and the whaling industry that led to the development of cetology (the science of whales) within national structures of knowledge and power centered around the whale. Chapter 4 analyzes the emergence of a common international whaling discourse that took shape around the development of whaling regulations. Starting from measures in place at the national level, it retraces the halting progression toward international whaling regulations that eventually yielded, in 1946, the IWC.
For this reason whaling historians Tonnessen and Johnsen (1982) distinguish between an inherently wasteful Western whaling, which was essentially for industrial purposes, and Japanese whaling, where human consumption remained a key driver throughout. Japan thus blurs the distinctions between ‘‘traditional’’ and ‘‘modern’’ whaling, in that the factory ships—the infamous emblem of modern whaling in the West today—that are still being operated for ‘‘scientiﬁc’’ whaling also yield whale meat. ) Thus, in Japan, factory whaling coexists today alongside traditional whaling.
