Abstract

Global problems require global solutions. The argument presented here at a global level of analysis is that we can learn something from both modernism and postmodernism but that global problems are more adequately addressed and solutions more likely to emerge from critical theory and critical cosmopolitanism.

Keywords: critical cosmopolitanism, critical theory, Habermas, HRD, modernism, postmodernism
