thesis that the end of the Cold War and the triumph of liberal democracies ended the struggle between political ideologies. As Fukuyama acknowledged, his thoughts drew heavily on the work of Russo-French philosopher and French bureaucrat Alexandre Kojève. But who was Kojève, and what did he think?
Professor James H. Nichols, a political scientist at Claremont McKenna College, answers that question and many others in his excellent new book Alexandre Kojève: Wisdom at the End of History.
Hudson Institute was pleased to host Prof. Nichols on Wednesday, March 19, 2008, from 12:00-2:00, for a discussion of Kojève's political thought. His respondents were Francis Fukuyama, a professor of political economy at Johns Hopkins, SAIS; Nathan Tarcov, a professor of political theory at University of Chicago; and Hillel Fradkin, a Hudson senior fellow.
