Raymond Aron reminds Martin Wight as a professor of International Relations who used to be considered a little sceptical about his own discipline. In fact, with respect to the short history of International Relations, the thought of this scholar shows characteristic features and very specific traits. Understanding some of the most relevant ones in particular the epistemological and axiological is the main aim of this article. They are discussed in the light of the whole set of ideal, religious and moral beliefs which motivated Wight to study world politics. While he is considered one of the most authoritative exponents of the so called «English school», he is not very well known outside Great Britain. On the other hand, his works aroused only a limited interest and in some circustances have even been misunderstood.
