Cosmopolitans are often regarded as utopian and rootless. The author of "Late Stoic Cosmopolitanism" tries, with the help of Seneca, Epictetus, and Marcus Aurelius, to "rehabilitate" these clichés by showing not just that cosmopolitanism, as an attitude, is a result of a certain educational agenda accessible to humanity, but also that the dialectics of rootedness and openness lies at the core of what it means to be a "citizen of the world".

The book investigates also the place and role of cosmopolitanism within late Stoic philosophical system, not without tackling some issues such as identity and peace which mean so much for human being in general, and for twenty-first century man in particular.
