Abstract

The prominent German political philosopher summarizes his arguments in a pointed statement: In a world risk society nationalism is becoming the enemy of the nation. Cosmopolitization is therefore a perspective for research, a political reality and a normative theory. And it is the critical theory of our times, since it challenges the most profound truths which we hold: the national truth.
