For as long as humanity has created different cultures, there has also been clashes between them. One would think that we'd be better at getting along by now. The author has written an engaging contemporary essay that is part philosophy and part situated reminiscence on the ancient concept of the "polites of the cosmos", or citizen of the world.

A gentle, conversational, sharp piece of advocacy for dialoguing with each other across cultures. Eirenic and perhaps somewhat naïve; but hopeful.
