Another Cosmopolitanism

Seyla Benhabib

The Berkeley Tanner Lectures

  • This innovative rethinking of basic elements of liberal democracy in a global perspective, together with the probing criticisms of her distinguished commentators and her responses to them, offer the reader a superabundance of concentrated political-theoretical insight. - Thomas McCarthy, John C. Shaffer Distinguished Professor of the Humanities, Northwestern University
  • Can the sovereignty of the democratic state resist the growing pressures for a cosmopolitan order of gloabal justice based on universal human rights? With her chracteristic analytic acumen, Seyla Benhabib crafts a subtle and original answer to this pressing question. Challenged by the trenchant criticisms of Bonnie Honig, Will Kymlicka, and Jeremy Waldron, she fruther refines and devleops an argument that is destined to be recognized as a major contribution to 21st-century political theory. - Martin Jay, Sidney Hellman Ehrman Professor of History, University of California, Berkeley
