Cosmopolitanism and the Circle of Reason

Cosmopolitanism and the Circle of Reason

Political Theory, 1 October 2000

What I require is a convening of my culture's criteria, in order to confront them with my words and life as I pursue them and as I may pursue them; and at the same time to confront my words and life as I pursue them with the life my culture's words may imagine for me: to confront the culture with itself, along the lines it meets in me.
