This chapter discusses a detailed outline of the first point of opposition for an embedded cosmopolitan position, called ‘impartialist cosmopolitanism’. There are many works that have approached the questions of global justice and duties to ‘distant strangers’ from impartialist cosmopolitan perspectives; this chapter focuses on only a few of them. The chapter addresses those liberal cosmopolitan positions that draw on the work of John Rawls and seeks to survey the points of disagreement found at the centre of an influential debate. Emphasis is drawn on the inclusive and critical capacities claimed by impartialist cosmopolitan positions.
Keywords: embedded cosmopolitan position, impartialist cosmopolitanism, global justice, impartialist cosmopolitan perspectives, liberal cosmopolitan position, John Rawls, distant strangers, inclusive capacities, critical capacities
