Theory presented by Francis Fukuyama in his book, The End of History and the Last Man (1992). In this book, Fukuyama presents the new world order in the aftermath of the Cold War as a scenario in which the triumph of Western liberal democratic values signals the end point of humanity’s sociocultural evolution, and the final form of human government. A distinction is made between history and events; if the world has in fact reached the end of history, this does not imply that events will stop happening in the future.
