Liberalism and the Question: Strauss and Derrida on Politics and Philosophy

Title:
Liberalism and the Question: Strauss and Derrida on Politics and Philosophy
Authors:
Schiff, Jade
Abstract:
The end of the Cold War was heralded by many observers as the triumph of liberal democracy, a triumph captured by Francis Fukuyama's infamous declaration of “the end of history.”1 The supposed triumph of liberal democracy was both political and philosophical. Politically, liberal democracy had outlasted its only serious rival, Soviet Communism, which had unceremoniously disintegrated.2 Philosophically, the triumph of liberal democracy suggested to some that the West had hit upon a fundamental piece of knowledge about the best political order for human beings.
