Abstract

The work under review is, in contrast to recent more accessible work by Harvey, such as The Enigma of Capital, a highly condensed survey of a wide range of primarily philosophical investigations (including most notably Kant and Heidegger) relating to issues of cosmopolitanism and globalisation. Harvey emphasises the relevance of historical/geographical analysis neglected by most of the theorists he discusses. Politically he seeks to counterpose an ‘insurgent’ and ‘subaltern’ cosmopolitanism to the liberal version of Beck, Held et al. which dominates current debates. But Harvey’s reliance on an organicist ‘internal relations’ conception of dialectical theory itself requires critique.

    See further Benhabib 2004. Later in the text however Harvey quite rightly endorses Benhabib’s critique of both the ‘exclusionary nationalism’ of John Rawls and the communitarian sentiments of Michael Walzer (Harvey 2009 pp. 89–91) – and he might have noted Walzer’s Zionist defence of Israel’s supposedly ‘just’ wars.
