Abstract

Abstract:

The stranger then is the foundation of the intellectual history of the cosmopolitan. Though it is not the main focus of Appiah's book, Cosmopolitanism: Ethics in a World of Strangers, it nonetheless haunts the text. The demand made on us through this haunting figure is to consider who this stranger is, what his parameters are, if he remains the Kantian European seeking the right to trade (that would eventually result in the domination of the globe), or if he is the refugee who forms the basis of ethical consideration of the stranger in our moment.
