This essay examines Ágnes Heller’s interpretation of the sense of historical existence in A Philosophy of History in Fragments (1993) and her interpretation of the sense of history in A Theory of History (1882). What meaning can we give, after the demise of the grand narratives of the nineteenth century, to G.W.F. Hegel’s Absolute Spirit and his conception of the Absolute Present? What can a theory of history offer us today compared with the promise and failure of philosophy of history.
