Module content and teaching
The idea of history having an ‘end’ can be understood in two distinct ways. It can refer to either a destination or a simple termination: Do we make ever greater progress or do we inevitably fall into decline? More brutally: Are we saved or do we become extinct? Humanity, especially in the Western tradition, has been arguably defined in the struggle between these two options.
