Für immer heute? The End of History and the Last Man von Francis Fukuyama

Chapter

Zusammenfassung

Francis Fukuyamas Klassiker The End of History and the Last Man formuliert die zentrale These, wonach mit der westlichen liberalen Demokratie der Endpunkt der ideologischen Entwicklung der Menschheit und damit das Ende der Geschichte schlechthin erreicht sei. Nach einem kurzen Blick in die Vita und das Gesamtwerk des Autors werden die zentrale Argumente der Studie selbst untersucht, von der Entstehung der liberalen Demokratie aufgrund der modernen Naturwissenschaft und des Kampfes um Anerkennung bis hin zu Überlegungen, ob das Ende der Geschichte letztlich wünschenswert sei und die liberale Demokratie das Streben nach Anerkennung der Menschen vollständig befriedige. Abschließend folgt ein Überblick zur breiten, überwiegend ablehnenden Rezeption und zur scharfen Kritik des Werkes, die sowohl empirische Elemente als auch den theoretischen Unterbau der Argumentation betreffen.
