Is global culture merely a pale and sinister reflection of capitalist globalization? Bruce Robbins responds to this and other questions inFeeling Global, a crucial document on nationalism, culturalism, and the role of intellectuals in the age of globalization.Building on his previous work, Robbins here takes up the question of the status of international human rights. Robbins' conception of internationalism is driven not only by the imperatives of global human rights policy, but by an understanding of transnational cultures, thus linking practical policymaking to cultural politics at the expense of neither. Robbins' cultural criticism, in other words, affords us much more than an understanding of how culture "shapes our lives." Instead, Robbins shows, particularly in his discussions of Martha Nussbaum, Richard Rorty, Susan Sontag, Michael Walzer and others, how "culture" itself has become a term that blocksugrave; for commentators on both the right and the leftugrave; serious engagement with the contemporary cosmopolitan ideal of a nonuniversalist discourse of human rights.Rescuing "cosmopolitanism" itself from its connotations of leisured individuals loyal to no one and willing to sample all cultures at will, Feeling Globalpresents a compelling way to think about the ethical obligations of intellectuals at a time when their place in the new world order is profoundly uncertain.
