“Perpetual Peace of the End of History”. Geopolitical Ideas of Immanuel Kant and Francis Fukuyama
Languages of publication
The article is linked with a well-known historiosophical concept of Francis Fukuyama on the “end of history”. Author tries to point out important links of the concept of Immanuel Kant suggested by the concept of perpetual peace. Referring to Kant Fukuyama asks again the question of directionality of universal history and the possibility of the end of history. It should be noted that Kant is one of the first authors who attempt to create a universality-historical concept. Fukuyama proclaimed the superiority of liberal democracy, which in turn beat systems such as monarchy, fascism, communism and the end. It is not only far from reaching the Western civilization, but the heritage and the triumph of humanity. Democracy sets the last phase of ideological evolution of humanity, and marks the end of the search the best form of government, and thus the end of the story. History has reached an end, as has come to the point where the existing form of socio-political organization fully meets the man in his innermost being. Let us vote Fukuyama, who wrote: “Human nature is not made once and for all, but it creates over time historically, within it is the same creation, the historical development of man tends to a certain point”.
