El parany cosmopolita. Una mirada a les arrels ideològiques de la globalització
Warning: Last items in stock!
Very few political or philosophical concepts have been used —and are being used— in a more perverse way than the one of cosmopolitanism. It is actually possible to be a “world citizen”? Of which world? Is it necessary to claim cosmopolitanism in a society as internationalised as ours? The aim of this essay is to figure out what does “cosmopolitan being” actually means and how the usage of the concept have changed through history. From its origin in the unstable Greece unified under the strength of Alexander the Great to the end of his realization in the Enlightened Europe, and fascinated by the arrogance of the reason —of his reason—, cosmopolitanism has turned out to be the alibi for the brutal process of imposition of the western forms of morality and economy that we now know as "globalization." The majority of the analysts and communicators —even many of those who condemn this process— continue to present cosmopolitanism as an "open", "plural" and "respectful" ideology. This work wants to unmask the conceptual trap that is hidden under the friendly cover of what is actually one more way— perhaps the most effective and subtle way —of totalitarianism.
