In recent years, political philosophy has been a resurgence of interest in the idea of cosmopolitanism. In common parlance, the term ‘cosmopolitanism’ suggests a posture of worldly sophistication which is naturally contrasted with more provincial or parochial outlooks. Philosophical usage, although not unrelated, tends to be more specialized. Interestingly enough, however, there is no consensus among contemporary philosophers and theorists about how the precise content of a cosmopolitan position is to be understood. This, despite the fact that cosmopolitanism as a political doctrine, has a rich history dating back to ancient times. This paper attempts to study Ian McEwan’s Black Dogs in the light of “moral cosmopolitanism.”
