Project outline:
During my stay at the Forschungskolleg Humanwissenschaften I will primarily work on my current book with the preliminary title Kant Contra Cosmopolitanism: Assessing the Global Justice Debate (Cambridge University Press). I will contrast Kant’s systematic-cosmopolitan approach with the rather praxis-oriented way of thinking in current debates on global justice. (Katrin Anna Flikschuh)
