O nomos e a lei: considerações sobre o realismo político em Carl Schmitt

The article deals with the political realism theme in the way of thinking of Carl Schmitt, in the light of his reflections on law and history of international politics in the modern world. For that purpose, the text analyses his narrative on the establishment of international relations order from the sixteenth century, as presented in the book Nomos der Erde im Völkerrecht des Jus Publicum Europaeum (The Nomos of the Earth in the International Law of Jus Publicum Europaeum). This analyses looks forward to place in evidence the way Carl Schmitt conceives the relation between modern age law and reality, and, by this, intends to present an image of his political realism that takes into account some of his historical and philosophical premises
