Book Description

July 15 2011 University of Wales Press - Political Philosophy Now

In current political debates, the term “cosmopolitanism” is often used in quite vague ways, as part of sweeping generalizations that might not hold up to closer scrutiny. Imperfect Cosmopolis aims to clarify the meaning of the term by approaching it from a decidedly historical perspective—distinguishing, for example, between types of cosmopolitanism and the development of the concept through the centuries.

Product Description


“The range of Georg Cavallar’s reading into the history of legal and political thought is impressive in both its breadth and its depth. It makes Imperfect Cosmopolis a richly textured account of the formation of European cosmopolitan ideas that enlightens us to how varied and also how imperfect cosmopolitan visions have been. In providing us with this more nuanced account, Cavallar presents the cosmopolitan project itself in a more humble, and therefore somehow more attractive, light.”—Gideon Baker, Griffith University
