Kant: Cosmopolitan Reason and Global Responsibility 33 Kant’s legacy While Kant’s cosmopolitanism is impressive in its integration of assorted elements, notably history, human capacities and the possibilities of the epoch, it is far from unproblematic. A recognition of these problems informs the commentary of contemporary global cosmopolitans on Kant, who criticise his formula for dealing with contemporary obstacles to cosmopolitanism. Kant’s projection of the progressive development of cosmopolitanism is rightly judged to be questionable.

Politics, for Kant, resembles morality insofar as it is likewise a formal and disinterested normative practice which does not serve as an instrument for realising the contingent goals of particular sets Kant: Cosmopolitan Reason and Global Responsibility 27 of people.
