Reviews and Awards
"It is hard to deny the fact that humans cannot avoid living side by side with all other humans. Yet nobody apart from Kant and Huber seems to have drawn out its implications for migration and mobility, the critique of colonialism, and the establishment of a tolerant and diverse global order. " - Peter Niesen, Professor of Political Theory, University of Hamburg
"This book advances a novel and plausible position in ongoing debates about cosmopolitanism and global justice, focusing on the seemingly unremarkable idea that everyone has a right to be someplace. Building on this idea, it develops an account of cosmopolitan justice in terms of rights to possible interaction. Everyone working on Kantian political philosophy and everyone interested in issues of cosmopolitanism will want to read it. " - Arthur Ripstein, Professor of Law and Philosophy, University Professor; Howard Beck, Q.C. Chair, University of Toronto
"Jakob Huber's terrific book develops a reading of Kant's 'grounded cosmopolitanism', based on our relationship as earth dwellers who act and affect one another through the use of space. This is a very important contribution to Kant scholarship, with significant implications for our understanding of colonialism and global mobility. " - Anna Stilz, Laurance S. Rockefeller Professor of Politics and the University Center for Human Values, Princeton University.
