“The mixture of difference and indifference can be described as cosmopolitanism. In social science this term does not refer to chic clothing or suave manners; it names more fundamentally a sense of comfort and security in the midst of strangers. The essence of this comfort I think can be explained as follows: cosmopolitanism consists of stimulation by the presence of others but not identification with them.”
