Clark Kucheman and Harry Jaffa as the first
speakers in the "Philosophy and . .." series. The series,
which is designed to demonstrate the connection
between the approaches of philosophy and other
disciplines to contemporary issues.
Professors Kucheman and Jaffa of CMC will discuss
Francis Fukuyama's recent, controversial article, "The
End of History?" (1989). Fukuyama claims that the rational end
of history has arrived, but in the ideals of the liberal
West, not in communism, as Marx predicted.
Kucheman and Jaffa will discuss whether we have or,
indeed, can reach the end of history. Copies of the
article and responses, which appeared in The National
Interest, are available at the Athenaeum.
The discussion begins at 7:00, following a 5:30
reception and 6:00 dinner. Please return the enclosed
