Fukuyama: History Keeps Ending – Five Great Thinkers Week

August 4, 2022 at 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm CEST

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected

Join Interintellect founder Anna Gát in this summer experience and explore the worlds of five great thinkers. One week, five short evening salons, five important intellectuals from the past century. A cosy online retreat for the mind… Come and learn, make friends, build a foundation that can open your knowledge to the world of great ideas!

Ever since Francis Fukuyama published his 1992 opus The End of History and the Last Man, an important theoretical coda to the Cold War that had just ended, every time history seems to not have ended (which is very often) someone surely brings him up, snarks, and basically reveals that they haven’t read it.

You can read clarifications here, here, and here (and paywalled: here and here).

In this salon we will talk about the political scientist’s responsibility in the public interpretation of the present and correct prediction of the future, and what a thinker should do with their own earlier ideas if they are still alive and working.

Prepare for the discussion by reading the following texts:
