Publication Title Cosmopolitanism: Ethics in a world of strangers
Description In Cosmopolitanism, Anthony Appiah has written a notable book not directed at anexpert audience of philosophers. Instead, his book is addressed at the general reader in-terested in “world citizenship”. It develops a notion of cosmopolitanism as a program,not as a closed theory, which on the one hand maintains the notion of universal values,defending them vehemently against relativism, while at the same time demanding re-spect for legitimate differences. Two goals that often collide in theory and practice.
