Abstract

Cosmopolitanism is a widely acknowledged theory in the academic debate of global political theory and what this thesis aims to do is, is conducting an idea critique on this political theory of cosmopolitanism. The analysis is divided into two main parts where one is a reconstruction and one is a critical discussion. The reconstruction is based on four analytical dimensions: the temporal dimension, the spatial dimension, the dimension of values, and the practical dimension of decision-making. After capturing the most central political claims of cosmopolitanism, they will be derived to larger traditions of ideas. The conclusion is that cosmopolitanism tends towards having a harmonious idea of the political. The critical discussion subjects the most problematic issues of cosmopolitanism to critical positions from both rationalist and post-structuralist perspectives. Within the critical discussion, the critique of cosmopolitanism will also be exposed to critique. The critical discussion will thus be threefold. Together these two parts will enable a discussion on the strength and consistency of cosmopolitanism. (Less)
