El Fin de todos los Fines.

¿Acaso no había llegado el Fin de la Historia?

  • Ricardo Gomez

Abstract

The following article discusses critically Fukuyama’s thesis about “the End of History” (1992) and his further reformulation of some of its central premises (2012). It is argued that, between the logical relation of Fukuyama’s propositions and empirical evidence, its implausible to defend that neoliberal capitalism is the exclusive current alternative. Also, the article shows the contradictions between the central premises of “the End of History” and its reformulation in the article The Future of History (Fukuyama, 2012). Finally, the article invites to refuse the notion that holds that the solutions of contemporary capitalism problems aren’t political but technical.
