China and the New Nomos of the Earth  

The world stands at a paradigm shift; a thunder of meeting, fighting tectonic plates. Vaclav Klaus, in his latest article in 'The Hungarian Conservative' laments the passing of an old order.

Francis Fukuyama and the Philosopher's Stone

In the 1990s there was a type of vulgar complacency in the social sciences. This was ushered in by the after effects of the Cold War which, it was presumed, meant the 'end of' something or other. The 'end of ideology', the 'end of history'; a supposition that the damaging 'ideologies' of the twentieth century were exposed and dismantled.
