The End of History

Christophe Honoré juxtaposes Witold Gombrowicz's drama with Francis Fukuyama's philosophical concepts. By reflecting the two authors, he tries to answer the question, what is History for us, living in the 21st century?

Can History really end? Theses of Fukuyama, and also Hegel, Marx, Kojève, Derrida do not close the unfinished drama, they rather open it for the challenges of the modern world.
