Thanks to advances in international communication and travel, it has never been easier to connect with the rest of the world. As philosophers debate the consequences of globalization, cosmopolitanism promises to create a stronger global community. Cosmopolitanism in the Age of Globalization examines this philosophy from numerous perspectives to offer a comprehensive evaluation of its theory and practice. Bringing together the works of political scientists, philosophers, historians, and economists, the work applies an interdisciplinary approach to the study of cosmopolitanism that illuminates its long and varied history. This diverse framework provides a thoughtful analysis of the claims of cosmopolitanism and introduces many overlooked theorists and ideas. This volume is a timely addition to sociopolitical theory, exploring the philosophical consequences of cosmopolitanism in today's global interactions.
"The range of thinkers this volume covers is extremely helpful for any scholar interested in cosmopolitanism. The volume is expansive temporally, culturally, thematically, and methodologically."—Richard Avramenko, University of Wisconsin-Madison
"The editors have enlisted a truly outstanding roster of luminaries in the world of political theory. This is a very fine collection."—Clifford Orwin, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Program in Political Philosophy and International Affairs, University of Toronto
