This book constitutes a good introduction to present 'cosmopolitan' debates. This research aims at introducing originally international political philosophy thanks to the concept of "attractor" : a very well known concept in physics or mathematics - especially on chaos theory. It provides an overview of the competing approaches of normative international theory by revisiting classical authors of the field, especially Kant, Hobbes, Rawls,…). It also introduces new theoretical approaches like cosmopolitism of the stranger or francophone approaches (Tassin, Bensaïd, Jullien).
