Product description

Synopsis

This landmark work challenges the separatist doctrines which have come to dominate our understanding of the world. Appiah revives the ancient philosophy of Cosmopolitanism, which dates back to the Cynics of the 4th century, as a means of understanding the complex world of today. Arguing that we concentrate too much on what makes us different rather than recognising our common humanity, Appiah explores how we can act ethically in a globalised world.

About the Author

Kwame Anthony Appiah is Professor of Philosophy at Princeton University. He was born in Ghana and educated at Cambridge. His previous work includes My Father's House, Thinking it Through and The Ethics of Identity. He is co-editor of Africana.
