Instrumental in bringing the ideas of Hegel into mainstream French philosophy. Kojčve viewed human history through the lens of its journey of understanding itself. Beyond his influence among French philosophers, in America his ideas found impact with Allan Bloom and Francis Fukuyama. Importantly, Kojčve felt that philosophers should participate in policy.
