Kant's Grounded Cosmopolitanism

Original Common Possession and the Right to Visit

Jakob Huber

  • Highlights the originality and systematic importance of Kant's notion of original common possession of the earth
  • Intervenes in ongoing debates about Kant's Doctrine of Right by putting forward novel readings of his account of property and statehood
  • Develops a comprehensive interpretation of Kant's discussion of cosmopolitan right (Weltbürgerrecht), including both its constraining and permissive dimensions
  • Provides an original systematic contribution to contemporary disputes about global justice, territory, migration, membership and colonialism
