About this product
- DescriptionCosmopolitanism is often discussed in a critical and disapproving manner: as a concept complicit with the interests of the powerful, or as a tion related to Western political supremacy, the ills of globalization, inequality, and capitalist ecomic penetration. Seen as the moral justification for embracing or tolerating cultural difference, ethnically and socially diverse communities unenthusiastic with change, develop an ackwledgement of their common position vis-a-vis a western, universal political point of view. By means of exploring the idiosyncratic form of political intimacy generated by anti-cosmopolitanism, and assuming an analytical and critical stance towards the concepts of parochialism and localism, this volume examines the political consciousness of such negatively predisposed actors, and it attempts to explain their reservation towards the sincerity of international politics, their reliance on conspiracy theories or nationalist narratives, their introversion.
