Abstract

Rooted cosmopolitanism lies in the idea that the flourishing and development of moral finalities of humankind depend largely on a national culture that must universalize itself on the rest of the world. Canada and Quebec national identities are strongly influenced by this idea and they both pretend that their way of dealing with ethnocultural pluralism are examples that the rest of the world should copy. By looking at the works of various Canadian and Quebec intellectuals, this article shows how the Canadian model of multiculturalism and the Quebec approach of interculturalism are now important elements of their respective national psyche.
