While reading Kant’s perpetual peace

Author

Abstract
In this paper, we propose a new reading of Kant's Perpetual Peace paying special attention to what we would like to call the ideological moment of his cosmopolitan and perpetual peace project. Main goal of revisiting Kant's ideas on war, peace and cosmopolitanism is to show, on the one hand, that every humanitarian or cosmopolitan discourse needs a grand narrative (ideology) for convincing and mobilizing people, on the other, that contemporary cosmopolitan and humanitarian discourses lack precisely this grand narrative and, consequently, the convincing power every political project requires.
