A. Toffler optimism evident in the way of perceiving the world around us changes endorses F. Fukuyama. In the books "The End of History" and "The Last Man," argues that the world's idea of liberal democracy reigned, assuming that democracy and liberalism are two different things. - F. Fukuyama, like A. Toffler, does not see the coming changes, caused by a computer revolution, reason to panic. For this turn of the nineties the political scientist is the end of history understood in the sense heglowsko-Marxist as a progressive development of political and economic institutions of mankind. The foundations of the emerging common to all mankind civilization are now democratic ideas. - Francis Fukuyama's thesis about the end of history, sparked a wave of criticism among scholars of international relations. The author referring to Hegel, and borrowing from it an understanding of history as a process of evolutionary nature, which converges in a specific, logical direction comes to the conclusion that the achievement of humanity's final stage will end this story.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
