The Birth of Presence

Review of Metaphysics 48 (4):918-920 (1995)


For Nancy there is no all-encompassing Hegelian Idea which explains history, no "Hegelian Monarch" who could speak for all. The "end of history" is the end of metanarrative History, the universal rationalizer. The twilight of History's Reason is the dawn of history for "us". That should make sense of "our" time without stopping time.
