In other words, the ethico-political work that nationalism and cosmopolitanism can do at any given moment depends on how either formation emerges from or is inscribed within the shifting material linkages and interconnections created by global capitalism at a particular historical conjuncture. The corollary to this is that although capitalism is the condition of possibility of both nationalism and cosmopolitanism, neither discourse can be reduced to its simple reﬂection and ideological instrument.
This question leads to the most difﬁcult one of all: In an uneven world, how can struggles for multicultural recognition in constitutional-democratic states in the North be brought into a global alliance with postcolonial activism in the periphery? The possibility of realizing a global civil society or an international public sphere capable of representing or mediating the needs and desires of humanity’s radically different constituencies through cross-identiﬁcations stands or falls here. Transnational mobility notwithstanding, it is doubtful whether transnational migrant communities can be characterized as examples of cosmopolitanism in the robust normative sense even after we have acknowledged that this normative dimension is necessarily diluted or compromised by historical contextualization.
The historical timing of Kant’s vision indicates that it is formulated prior to the spread of nationalism in Europe. 16 This era of the nationality principle saw the rise of Greek, Belgian, and Polish nationalist movements, ﬁrst aroused by the Napoleonic invasion, and now rebelling against their Ottoman, Dutch, and Russian governments for the primary reason that these were foreign regimes. Kant’s idea of the cosmopolitical is formulated too early to take into account the role of nationalism in the transition between the age of absolutism and the age of liberalism.
