Product description


Cosmopolitanism is... of wide interest--invitingly written and enlivened by personal history.... Appiah is wonderfully perceptive and levelheaded about this tangle of issues.--Thomas Nagel

[Appiah's] belief in having conversations across boundaries, and in recognizing our obligations to other human beings, offers a welcome prescription for a world still plagued by fanaticism and intolerance.--Kofi A. Annan, former United Nations secretary-general

[Appiah's] exhilarating exposition of his philosophy knocks one right off complacent balance.... All is conveyed with flashes of iconoclastic humor.--Nadine Gordimer, winner of the 1991 Nobel Prize in Literature

A welcome attempt to resurrect an older tradition of moral and political reflection and to show its relevance to our current condition.--John Gray

An attempt to redefine our moral obligations to others based on a very humane and realistic outlook and love of art.... I felt like a better person after I read it, and I recommend the same experience to others.--Orham Pamuk, winner of the 2006 Nobel Prize in Literature

Elegantly provocative.--Edward Rothstein --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
