Alexandre Kojève (19021968) was a thinker of many contradictions. Born in Russia, he spent most of his life in France. His interpretation of Hegel and his notorious declaration that history had come to an end had a major influence on French thinkers and writers such as Raymond Aron, Georges Bataille, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Jacques Lacan, and Raymond Queneau. An unorthodox Marxist, he was a critic of Martin Heidegger and interlocutor of Leo Strauss who played a leading role in establishing the European Economic Community; a polyglot with many arcane interests, he wrote works, mostly unpublished, on quantum physics, the problem of the infinite, Christian theology, Mahayana Buddhism, atheism, and Vassily Kandinskys paintings.

InThe Black Circle, Jeff Love reinterprets Kojèves works, showing him to be a provocative thinker who challenged modern society and its valuation of individuality, self-interest, and freedom from death. Emphasizing Kojèves neglected Russian roots,The Black Circle puts him in the context of the late-nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century Russian debates over the proper ends of human life. Love explores notions of perfection, freedom, and finality in Kojèves account of Hegel and his neglected later works, clarifying Kojèves emancipatory thinking and the meaning of the oft-misinterpreted end of history. Joining intellectual history, close textual analysis, and philosophy to reassess an essential modern theorist,The Black Circle reveals Kojèves thought as a profound critique of capitalist individualism and a timely meditation on human freedom.
