Pragmatic Revolutionism

Part of the The Sciences Po Series in International Relations and Political Economy book series (SPIRP)


The world that had rid itself of the Cold War began anew with a Romantic ode. Words had pride of place in the new order of things; the language of “transition” was symptomatic. The phrases expressing the “fall” of the Berlin Wall, the liturgy of the “truth” and “reconciliation” commissions and the mantras of “reparations” were the main formulas in this bewitching lexicon. The 1990s were hailed by a siren song; the end of Hegelian history and the coming of the Kantian world of rights between them betokened its beginning (and triumph).
