Ideas

Appiah argues that the formative denotation of culture is ultimately preceded by the efficacy of intellectual interchange.{{clarify|date=April 2018}} From this position, his views on the efficacy of organizations such as UNICEF and Oxfam are notable for their duality: on the one hand he seems to appreciate the immediate action these organizations provide while on the other hand he points out the long-term futility of such intervention. His focus is, instead, on the long-term political and economic development of nations according to the Western capitalist/ democratic model, an approach that relies on continued growth in the "marketplace" that is the capital-driven modern world.However, when capitalism is introduced and it does not "take off" as in the Western world, the livelihood of the peoples involved is at stake. Thus, the ethical questions involved are certainly complex, yet the general impression in Appiah's "Kindness to Strangers" is one which implies that it is not up to "us" to save the poor and starving, but up to their own governments. Nation-states must assume responsibility for their citizens, and a cosmopolitan's role is to appeal to "our own" government to ensure that these nation-states respect, provide for, and protect their citizens.If they will not, "we" are obliged to change their minds; if they cannot, "we" are obliged to provide assistance, but only our "fair share," that is, not at the expense of our own comfort, or the comfort of those "nearest and dearest" to us.BOOK, Appiah, Anthony Kwame, "Moral disagreement" and "Kindness to strangers", Appiah, Anthony Kwame, Cosmopolitanism: ethics in a world of strangers, 45–68 and 155–174, W.W. Norton & Co, New York, 2006, 9780141027814, harv, ., Appiah's early philosophical work dealt with probabilistic semantics and theories of meaning, but his more recent books have tackled philosophical problems of race and racism, identity, and moral theory. His current work tackles three major areas: 1. the philosophical foundations of liberalism; 2. the questioning of methods in arriving at knowledge about values; and 3. the connections between theory and practice in moral life, all of which concepts can also be found in his book Cosmopolitanism: Ethics in a World of Strangers.On postmodern culture Appiah writes, "Postmodern culture is the culture in which all postmodernisms operate, sometimes in synergy, sometimes in competition; and because contemporary culture is, in a certain sense to which I shall return, transnational, postmodern culture is global{{spnd}}though that emphatically does not mean that it is the culture of every person in the world."JOURNAL, Is the Post- in Postmodernism the Post- in Postcolonial?, Critical Inquiry, Winter 2009, Kwame Anthony, Appiah, 17, 2, 336–357,

Cosmopolitanism

File:Kwame Anthony Appiah.jpg|thumb|Princeton University professor Kwame Anthony Appiah, lecturing at Syracuse University's S. I. Newhouse School of Public CommunicationsS. I. Newhouse School of Public CommunicationsAppiah has been influenced by the cosmopolitanist philosophical tradition, which stretches from German philosophers such as Hegel through W. E. B. Du Bois and others. In his article "Education for Global Citizenship", Appiah outlines his conception of cosmopolitanism. He therein defines cosmopolitanism as "universality plus difference". Building from this definition, he asserts that the first takes precedence over the latter, that is: different cultures are respected "not because cultures matter in themselves, but because people matter, and culture matters to people." But Appiah first defined it as its problems but ultimately determines that practicing a citizenship of the world and conversation is not only helpful in a post-9/11 world. Therefore, according to Appiah's take on this ideology, cultural differences are to be respected in so far as they are not harmful to people and in no way conflict with our universal concern for every human's life and well-being.JOURNAL, Appiah, Kwame Anthony, Chapter 6: Education for global citizenship, Yearbook of the National Society for the Study of Education, 107, 1, 83–99, Wiley-Blackwell, Wiley, 10.1111/j.1744-7984.2008.00133.x, April 2008,weblink harv, ., In his book Cosmopolitanism: Ethics in a World of Strangers,Appiah, Kwame (2006). Cosmopolitanism: Ethics in a World of Strangers. {{ISBN|0-393-06155-8}} Appiah introduces two ideas that "intertwine in the notion of cosmopolitanism" (Emerging, 69). The first is the idea that we have obligations to others that are bigger than just sharing citizenship. The second idea is that we should never take for granted the value of life and become informed of the practices and beliefs of others. Kwame Appiah frequents university campuses to speak to students. One request he makes is, "See one movie with subtitles a month.".WEB, Aguila, Sissi,weblink Kwame Appiah discusses 'World Citizenship' at FIU, FIU News, Florida International University, April 23, 2010, January 21, 2014,

Criticism of Afrocentric world view

Appiah has been a critic of contemporary theories of Afrocentrism. In his essay "Europe Upside Down: Fallacies of the New Afrocentrism," Appiah argues that current Afrocentricism is striking for "how thoroughly at home it is in the frameworks of nineteenth century European thought," particularly as a mirror image to Eurocentric constructions of race and a preoccupation with the ancient world. Appiah also finds an irony in the conception that if the source of the West lies in ancient Egypt via Greece, then "its legacy of ethnocentrism is presumably one of our moral liabilities."Kwame Anthony Appiah, "Europe Upside Down: Fallacies of the New Afrocentrism" in Perspectives on Africa, ed. Richard Roy Grinker and Christopher B. Steiner (London: Blackwell Publishers, 1997), pp. 728–731. Appiah's critique of contemporary Afrocentrism has been criticized by some of its leading proponents, such as Temple University African American Studies scholar and activist Molefi Asante, who has characterized Appiah's work as "anti-African."WEB, Asante, Molefi Kete, Molefi Asante, A quick reading of rhetorical jingoism: Anthony Appiah and his fallacies (blog),weblink asante.net, Dr. Molefi Kete Asante, October 10, 2010,
