What we may be witnessing is not just
the end of the Cold War, or the passing of a
particular period of postwar history, but the
end of history as such: that is, the end point
of mankind's ideological evolution and the
universalization of Western liberal democracy
as the final form of human government. This
is not to say that there will no longer be events
to fill the pages of Foreign Affairs's yearly sum
maries of international relations, for the vic
tory of liberalism has occu
ed primarily in
the realm of ideas or consciousness and is as
yet incomplete in the real or material world.
But there are powerful reasons for believing
that it is the ideal that will govern the material
world in the long run. To understand how this
is so, we must first consider some theoretical
issues concerning the nature of historical
THE NOTION of the end of history is not an original one. Its best
known propagator was Karl Marx, who be
lieved that the direction of historical devel
opment was a purposeful one determined by
the interplay of material forces, and would
come to an end only with the achievement of
a communist Utopia that would finally resolve
all prior contradictions. But the concept of
history as a dialectical process with a begin
ning, a middle, and an end was bo
owed by
Marx from his great German predecessor,
Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel.
For better or worse, much of Hegel's his
toricism has become part of our contemporary
intellectual baggage. The notion that mankind
has progressed through a series of primitive
stages of consciousness on his path to the pres
ent, and that these stages co
esponded to con
crete forms of social organization, such as tri
al, slave-owning, theocratic, and finally
democratic-egalitarian societies, has become
inseparable from the modern understanding
of man. Hegel was the first philosopher to
speak the language of modern social science,
insofar as man for him was the product of his
concrete historical and social environment
The National Interest—Summer 1989 .
and not, as earlier natural right theorists
would have it, a collection of more or less fixed
"natural" attributes. The mastery and trans
formation of man's natural environment
through the application of science and tech
nology was originally not a Marxist concept,
but a Hegelian one. Unlike later historicists
whose historical relativism degenerated into
relativism tout court, however, Hegel believed
that history culminated in an absolute mo
ment—a moment in which a final, rational
form of society and state became victorious.
It is Hegel's misfortune to be known now
primarily as Marx's precursor, and it is ou
misfortune that few of us are familiar with
Hegel's work from direct study, but only as
it has been filtered through the distorting lens
of Marxism. In France, however, there has
been an effort to save Hegel from his Marxist
interpreters and to resu
ect him as the phi
losopher who most co
ectly speaks to ou
time. Among those modern French inte
preters of Hegel, the greatest was certainly
Alexandre Kojève, a
illiant Russian emigre
who taught a highly influential series of sem
inars in Paris in the 1930s at the Ecole Practique
des Hautes Etudes.1 While largely unknown in
the United States, Kojève had a major impact
on the intellectual life of the continent.
Among his students ranged such future lu
minaries as Jean-Paul Sartre on the Left and
Raymond Aron on the Right; postwar exis
tentialism bo
owed many of its basic cate
gories from Hegel via Kojève.
Kojève sought to resu
ect the Hegel of
the Phenomenology of Mind, the Hegel who pro
claimed history to be at an end in 1806. Fo
as early as this Hegel saw in Napoleon's defeat
of the Prussian monarchy at the Battle of Jena
the victory of the ideals of the French Rev
'Kojève's best-known work is his Introduction à la
lecture de Hegel (Paris: Editions Gallimard,
1947), which is a transcript of the Ecole Practique
lectures from the 1930s. This book is available
in English entitled Introduction to the Reading
of Hegel a

by Allan Bloom, and translated by James Ni

next century and a half, insisted that the latte

Jena marked the end of history because it was
at that point that the vanguard of humanity (a
term quite familiar to Marxists) actualized the
principles of the French Revolution. While
there was considerable work to be done afte
1806—abolishing slavery and the slave trade,
extending the franchise to workers, women,
blacks, and other racial minorities, etc.—the
basic principles of the liberal democratic state
could not be improved upon. The two world
wars in this century and their attendant rev
olutions and upheavals simply had the effect
of extending those principles spatially, such
that the various provinces of human civili
zation were
ought up to the level of its most
advanced outposts, and of forcing those so
cieties in Europe and North America at the
vanguard of civilization to implement thei
liberalism more fully.
The state that emerges at the end of his
tory is liberal insofar as it recognizes and pro
tects through a system of law man's universal
right to freedom, and democratic insofar as it
exists only with the consent of the governed.
For Kojève, this so-called "universal homo
genous state" found real-life embodiment in
the countries of postwar Western Europe—

When you have any doubts about including the work of other authors in your assessment, please consult your traine
The following list outlines some of the activities for which a learner can be accused of plagiarism:
· presenting any work by another individual as one's own unintentionally
· handing in assessments markedly similar to or copied from another learne
· presenting the work of another individual or group as their own work
· handing in assessments without the adequate acknowledgement of sources used, including assessments taken totally or in part from the internet.
If it is identified that you have plagiarised within your assessment, then a meeting will be organised to discuss this with you, and further action may be taken accordingly.
Collusion is the presentation by a learner of an assignment as their own that is, in fact, the result in whole or in part of unauthorised collaboration with another person or persons. Collusion involves the cooperation of two or more learners in plagiarism or other forms of academic misconduct and, as such, both parties are subject to disciplinary action. Collusion or copying from other learners is not permitted and will result in a “0” grade and NYC.
Assessments must be typed using document software such as (or similar to) MS Office. Handwritten assessments will not be accepted (unless, prior written confirmation is provided by the traine
assessor to confirm).

Once the learner has satisfactorily completed all the tasks for this module the learner will be awarded “Competent” (C) or “Not yet Competent” (NYC) for the relevant unit of competency.
If you are deemed “Not Yet Competent” you will be provided with feedback from your assessor and will be given another chance to resubmit your assessment task(s). If you are still deemed as “Not Yet Competent” you will be required to re-enrol in the unit of competency.

You will be advised of any gap training and the re-sit process if required. When you have finished the assessment, the assessor will check your performance and answers and let you know if the outcome is “Competent” or “Not Yet Competent”.
