Fukuyama's-The End of History?
WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 15, 1989
The Claremont Philosophy Colloquium presents Clark Kucheman and Harry Jaffa as the first speakers in the "Philosophy and . .." series. The series, which is designed to demonstrate the connection between the approaches of philosophy and other disciplines to contemporary issues.
Professors Kucheman and Jaffa of CMC will discuss Francis Fukuyama's recent, controversial article, "The End of History?" (1989). Fukuyama claims that the rational end of history has arrived, but in the ideals of the liberal West, not in communism, as Marx predicted.
Kucheman and Jaffa will discuss whether we have or, indeed, can reach the end of history. Copies of the article and responses, which appeared in The National Interest, are available at the Athenaeum.
The discussion begins at 7:00, following a 5:30 reception and 6:00 dinner. Please return the enclosed meal reservation.
