ABSTRACT
The article discusses the dialectics of nuclear weapons, nuclear deterrence and proliferation. The dialectics concern "vertical" and "horizontal" proliferation. Vertical proliferation refers to increasing the nuclear potential of nuclear powers, while horizontal proliferation points to the increasing number of states that stockpile nuclear weapons. It is concluded that vertical nuclear disarmament cannot be separated from horizontal disarmament.
