Research Group: Cosmopolitanism

Theories of cosmopolitanism remain underdeveloped and controversial primarily because they arise almost exclusively from the Anglo-American philosophical tradition and employ its characteristic approaches.

The U.S.-China Research Group on Cosmopolitanism, convened by Philip J. Ivanhoe of Georgetown University in collaboration with Peng Guoxiang of Zhejiang University, brings together nine scholars from the United States and the Chinese cultural sphere. It aims to develop and pursue a structured dialogue around theoretical and practical problems related to cosmopolitanism with the goal of identifying issues of shared concern.
