What is the legitimate use of force by states in their relations? The answer to this question is analysed through a dialogue between Raymond Aron and Jacques Maritain, concerning the Machiavellian and the Kantian problem. The former follows from the problem of the legitimate means that can be used in the context of the relations between states, that is, the possibility of resorting to force, and the latter from the problem of the ban of force leading to universal peace.
