About the Title

The "end of history" and "the last man" are key concepts in Francis Fukuyama’s argument. He discusses the idea of history as a process of evolution from primitive society to the final stage, modern capitalist liberal democracy. He views the period after the end of the Cold War (the 40-year arms race period of hostility without battles, between the United States and the Soviet Union) as the triumph of capitalism (the economic system in which the means of production are privately owned and distributed through markets) and liberal democracy, and thus the end of history. An inhabitant of this period is the "last man": the final, fully evolved human beings.
