TL;DR: The authors argue that cosmopolitanism has a critical dimension which offers a solution to one of the weaknesses in the critical theory tradition: failure to respond to the challenges of globalization and intercultural communication.
Abstract: Gerard Delanty provides a comprehensive assessment of the idea of cosmopolitanism in social and political thought which links cosmopolitan theory with critical social theory. He argues that cosmopolitanism has a critical dimension which offers a solution to one of the weaknesses in the critical theory tradition: failure to respond to the challenges of globalization and intercultural communication. Critical cosmopolitanism, he proposes, is an approach that is not only relevant to social scientific analysis but also normatively grounded in a critical attitude. Delanty's argument for a critical, sociologically oriented cosmopolitanism aims to avoid, on the one hand, purely normative conceptions of cosmopolitanism and, on the other, approaches that reduce cosmopolitanism to the empirical expression of diversity. He attempts to take cosmopolitan theory beyond the largely Western context with which it has generally been associated, claiming that cosmopolitan analysis must now take into account non-Western expressions of cosmopolitanism.

Abstract: Observant un retour a la problematique du cosmopolitisme pour faire face a la resurgence actuelle des sentiments nationalistes dans le monde, l'A etablit une typologie des differentes formes de cosmopolitisme moral, federaliste-international, juridique, culturel (G Forster), economique (D H Hegewisch), et romantique (Schlegel, Novalis), qui se sont developpees en Allemagne a la fin du XVII e siecle Examinant la notion de citoyennete morale a l'origine du cosmopolitisme moral de C M Wieland et de la theorie morale, politique et juridique de Kant, l'A montre que le cosmopolitisme romantique, a l'exception de celui de F Schlegel, s'oppose aux cinq autres versions en tant qu'il marque la fin des Lumieres et adopte le courant reactionnaire et nationnaliste qui caracterisera le romantisme allemand
