Nichols examines the major writings of Alexandre Kojeve, and clarifies the character and brings to light the importance of his political philosophy. This is an essential assessment of Kojeve which considers the works that preceded his turn to Hegel, seeks to articulate the character of his Hegelianism, and reflects in detail on the two different meanings that the end of history had in two different periods of his thought.
