La terra degli altri

Traiettorie sociologiche del cosmopolitismo
  • Anna Taglioli,

La terra degli altri is a conceptual roadmap for finding one's way through sociological studies addressing social, cultural and political change. The approach is both organic and detailed, from an international and European viewpoint, developing though a pondered and multi-disciplinary reconstruction of the key notion of cosmopolitanism. Entering into the polyseme of a category that has its origins in Greek philosophy and is manifest in the ambivalent historic dialectic between universalism and cultural relativism, Anna Taglioli presents cosmopolitanism as a paradigm for reading the process of construction of our civilisation and as an analytical lens capable of focusing a reality that emerges as structurally cosmopolitan. The reflection and mirror of the transformations of European society, the 'ism' becomes a project for addressing contemporary democratic challenges, the proposal of a meditation that can be applied to the entities and institutions in order to overcome the logic of the single, mapping out a society built upon dialogue. Shifting the cosmopolitan ideal to an inclusive trajectory underscores the importance of the cosmopolitan as a prospect of internalisation of the transforming elements of modernity and an expression of new reflective relationships that can contribute to building the possibility of a new 'social, cultural and political world'.
