Cosmology and Cosmopolitanism

Collegium Phaenomenologicum

Città di Castello, 10 - 28 July 2023

Cosmology and Cosmopolitanism name two of our most familiar horizons for coming to understand what it means to be and thus also how to live as human beings. Cosmology names the notion by which we understand ourselves in virtue of our place in a larger cosmological order. Cosmopolitan, by contrast, understands human beings principally as beings on a finite globe. This historical shift in how we take the world to which we belong to be marks a decisive turn in forming the possibilities for human life and human community. This Collegium will not only trace the meaning of this arc, but also ask how we may think anew the relation between the cosmic and the worldly in how we give order and orientation to our lives.
