The right to visit of which Kant speaks in the “Third definitive article on perpetual peace” requires, precisely because of its theoretical framework, to be inscribed in a broader register, that is to say one that does not only concern the specifically political and legal aspects of the cosmopolitical project, but makes reference to the issue concerning the very sense in which the possession of reason can legitimately be referred to man. Only thus is it possible theoretically to access in an informed way the main sense of the Kantian cosmopolitical project and the theme of universal hospitality. And this is perhaps the way in which Kant himself, in responding to the urgent issues of his day, can indirectly provide us too with decisive suggestions for working out concrete proposals on the issue of hospitality and pacific cohabitation among peoples.
