This chapter appraises Simma's methodology as a self-described ‘enlightened’ or ‘modern’ positivist and explores its connections to the vision of world order and global justice toward which it strives, but which, like an uncomfortable dance partner, it does not yet embrace. It discusses cosmopolitan trends for the positivist, and the problem of global distributive justice which is central to the cosmopolitan project.

Keywords:   Bruno Simma, positivism, cosmopolitanism, global justice
