A Review of Literature in Indian Political Thought
This chapter discusses the limitations of ‘universalist’ cosmopolitanism and offers an alternative in the form of a so-called postcolonial cosmopolitanism. It also considers a novel form of comparativism where the Western and the non-Western texts and ideas will be equal partners in intellectual search. This chapter also highlights the importance of cosmopolitanism studies in providing a better understanding of how the intellectual, cultural, and economic contests between the powerful and the subaltern inflect and are inflected by alternative spatial frames.
