From Enlightenment Cosmopolitanism to Liberal Nationalism
This chapter examines the debate between traditional Enlightenment cosmopolitanism and liberal nationalism. Enlightenment thinkers view the state as a protector of individual liberties, rather than a defender of national culture or identities. Liberal nationalists expect the state to protect national cultures and to express people’s identities. It is argued that liberal nationalism involves a ‘redefinition’ of cosmopolitanism, given that these share many commonalities.
