Justice without Borders: Cosmopolitanism, Nationalism, and Patriotism

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Oct 28, 2004 - Political Science - 236 pages
Kok-Chor Tan argues that the cosmopolitan idea of global justice may be understood in such a way that it can accept nationalist and patriotic commitments. Tan believes that cosmopolitan justice need not deny the worth of the ordinary non-impartial values even as it defends a vision of global egalitarianism. Properly understood, it can set the limits for nationalist and patriotic efforts without denying the moral independence of these partial pursuits.
