Cosmopolitanism: Ethics in a World of Strangers
W. W. Norton & Company, February 2007. Trade Paperback. Used - Good. Item #226956
Drawing on a broad range of disciplines, including history, literature, and philosophy as well as the author's own experience of life on three continents ?Cosmopolitanism? is a moral manifesto for a planet we share with more than six billion strangers."
Reviving the ancient philosophy of 'Cosmopolitanism,' a school of thought that dates to the Cynics of the fourth century BCE, Appiah traces its influence through history to show how Western intellectuals and leaders have wildly exaggerated the power of difference--and neglected the power of one.
