About this Item

Hardcover. 208 pages. J. M. Coetzee and the Limits of Cosmopolitanism analyzes how J. M. Coetzees later fiction tests current understandings of the promises and pitfalls of cosmopolitanism. Drawing on postcolonial and gender studies, as well as affect theory, the book interrogates cosmopolitan philosophies in which feeling cosmopolitan is equated with being cosmopolitan. The study proposes that Coetzees writing questions both the desirability and inevitability of purportedly cosmopolitan feelings. It offers an alternative model of cosmopolitanism that challenges the supposition that cosmopolitanism requires the propagation of openness to others, or the proliferation of multiple attachments. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137352545
