I mentioned on Rough Theory that I had read Francis Fukuyama, and I was specifically referring to his book The End of History and the Last Man. However, I have to confess that I can remember absolutely nothing from the experience of reading it. I know I read it since I have notes on it somewhere and one paper I wrote in undergrad cites it. Evidently, I’ve read it in the past, but I can’t even remember what it was about. Well, I know what it’s about because I’ve read reviews and it’s mentioned here and there in other articles and such, but I can’t pull out of my mind any knowledge of the book that specifically comes from my own reading. I have a feeling I wasn’t impressed, otherwise reading the book would have made an actual impression on me. What I remember from book reviews also leads me to conclude that I probably dumped the book from my long-term memory because I didn’t think it was that great. I’m not too broken up about this situation, but it is rather curious.
