THE NAME:

Definitions of cosmopolitanism usually begin with the Greek etymology of “citizen of the world”.

Cosmopolitanism can be defined as a global politics that, firstly, projects a sociality of common political engagement among all human beings across the globe, and, secondly, suggests that this sociality should be either ethically or organizationally privileged over other forms of sociality,
