Emergent world society is the new human universal – not an idea, but the fact of our shared occupation of the planet crying out for new principles of association. A close reading of Kant's Anthropology leads to an emphasis on anthropology as a form of education for subjective individuals who share the object world with the rest of humanity. Knowledge of society must be personal and moral before it is defined by laws imposed from above. Anthropology might then be a self-learning tool for anyone who cares about making a world society fit for humanity as a whole.
