On the Nature of Dogs, the Right of Grace, Forgiveness and Hospitality: Derrida, Kant, and Lars Von Trier's Dogville

Wow.  Cosmopolitanism vs. communitarianism.  It is all so rich.  The film Dogville was a bit much for me because of all the sexual violence, but the concepts introduced are nonetheless worth analyzing.  Immanuel Kant's argument for "cosmopolitan right" to hospitality as a world citizen is very interesting.  Give the article a read and leave your response.
