Historical Teleologies in the Modern World

Historical Teleologies in the Modern World (Europe's Legacy in the Modern World) by Henning Trüper and Dipesh Chakrabarty
English | 2015 | ISBN: 1474221068, 1474221076 | 384 pages | PDF | 3 MB

tracks the fragmentation and proliferation of teleological understandings of history - the notion that history had to be explained as a goal-directed process - in Europe and beyond throughout the 19th and into the 20th century. Historical teleologies have profoundly informed a variety of other disciplines, including modern philosophy, natural history, literature, humanitarian and religious philanthropism, the political thought and practice of revolution, emancipation, imperialism, colonialism and anti-colonialism, the conceptualization of universal humankind, and the understanding of modernity in general.

By exploring the extension and plurality of historical teleology, the essays in this volume revise the history of historicity in the modern period. casts doubt on the idea that a single, if powerful, conception of time could function as the unifying principle of all modern historicity, instead pursuing an investigation of the plurality of modern historicities and its underlying structures. By bringing together Western and non-Western histories, this book provides the first extended treatment of the idea of historical teleology. It will be of great value to students and scholars of modern global and intellectual history.
