Book Description

28 Oct 2004 Contemporary Political Theory
The cosmopolitan idea of justice is commonly accused of not taking seriously the special ties and commitments of nationality and patriotism. This is because the ideal of impartial egalitarianism, which is central to the cosmopolitan view, seems to be directly opposed to the moral partiality inherent to nationalism and patriotism. In this book, Kok-Chor Tan argues that cosmopolitan justice, properly understood, can accommodate and appreciate nationalist and patriotic commitments, setting limits for these commitments without denying their moral significance. This book offers a defense of cosmopolitan justice against the charge that it denies the values that ordinarily matter to people, and a defence of nationalism and patriotism against the charge that these morally partial ideals are fundamentally inconsistent with the obligations of global justice. Accessible and persuasive, this book will have broad appeal to political theorists and moral philosophers.

Product Description

Review

'This clear and highly convincing book articulates and defends a plausible version of cosmopolitanism while providing an excellent overview of recent debates.' Journal of Moral Philosophy

'This is a solid introduction to cosmopolitanism and its apparent tensions with patriotism and nationalism.' Thomas W. Pogge, Columbia University

'… a solid introduction to cosmopolitanism and its apparent tensions with patriotism and nationalism.' Mind

Book Description

Kok-Chor Tan argues that the cosmopolitan idea of global justice may be understood in such a way that it can accept some forms of nationalist and patriotic commitments without having to abandon its ideal of global equal concern. This accessible, persuasive book will appeal to political theorists and moral philosophers.

Cosmopolitanism, as a normative idea, takes the individual to be the ultimate unit of moral concern and to be entitled to equal consideration regardless of nationality and citizenship. Read the first page

And solidly grounded.
My apologies, but if I can give my opinion in a brief statement, why should I add more words to add up to the required number?.

3.0 out of 5 stars For grad students only 13 Mar 2007
By Charles Francis - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The writing style is very prolix and pedantic, more like a thesis.
