Overview

Tan (philosophy, U. of Pennsylvania) defends the cosmopolitan idea of distributive justice against the argument that is it unable to accommodate and appreciate the special ties and commitments that characterize the lives of ordinary people. In the course of his argument, he also defends patriotism and nationalism against the charge that it fosters a narrow-mindedness and parochialism with regard to people's understanding of their moral obligations. For readers new to the field, he provides background on the cosmopolitan idea of justice. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
