Summary

J.M. Coetzee and the Limits of Cosmopolitanism draws on postcolonial and gender studies as well as affect theory to interrogate cosmopolitan philosophies. Through analysis of J.M. Coetzee's later fiction, Katherine Hallemeier invites the re-imagining of cosmopolitanism, particularly as it is performed through the reading of literature. The book foregrounds a question as central both to Coetzee's later fiction and to contemporary cosmopolitan thought: is it possible to apprehend 'humankind' without eliding the distinctiveness of 'other lives'?
