Earlier this year, Charles Mudede described Fukuyama's philosophy: "But all of this ideological business seemed way out of place in a post-historical world. Thinkers like Fukuyama marked the end of the Cold War as the end of ideology: American ideology rose to the condition of reality; Soviet ideology sank into the depths of the past. Human development had reached its terminal point with democratic capitalism." But, of course, ideology has never been out of the picture, and its triumph in American life today is all too obvious. To his credit, in 2014, Fukuyama warned of the deterioration of American institutions and the fall of the state to special interest groups. In this talk, Fukuyama will speak about the "demand for recognition of one's identity," which he says is "a master concept that unifies much of what is going on in world politics today."
