About Dr Garrett Wallace Brown's talk

Why ‘we’ should care about ‘them’?: The future of cosmopolitan ethics in a
fragmented world

Watch or listen to Dr. Garrett's talk here

ABSTRACT:

This lecture will argue the idea that we have robust cosmopolitan moral duties to those beyond our borders and suggest reasoning for why cosmopolitanism is not only relevant to contemporary global relations, but why it is also absolutely necessary to effectively respond to global concerns such as climate change, infectious transborder diseases, humanitarian disasters and economic stagnation and risk. In presenting this case, the lecture will defend cosmopolitan ethics from its strongest critics (realism, cultural relativism, pluralism, imperialism) as well as presenting arguments for why it is possible to retain reinvigorated cosmopolitan moral and institutional enthusiasm in a world that is as fragmented as it is equally interconnected.
