Jeremy Fogel has written a book that is philosophically insightful, thought-provoking, and enjoyable to read. His analysis shows us that ‘universalism’ need not be understood in only one way, and that new and different types of universalisms have been and can be possible. He thus provides us with fruitful resources for challenging the ethical problems that stem both from colonialist forms of universalism and from the abandonment of efforts at thinking universally.
