Local/Cosmopalitan

January 4, 2012

One the principle binaries that must function in our thinking is the relationship between the local and the cosmopolitan.  There is a fundamental difference between local human wants that are defined by the cultural and social context where they are shaped and realized and those that seem to transcend any particular moment and situations.  Desires (like health c are, education and, at least certain technologies) speak to our humanness.  There in no reason to homogenizes these differences, even if  they call out to be resolved on a philosophical level.
