This concluding section presents three vignettes that indicate various ways in which the constellation of Benjamin's and Nietzsche's writings illuminate contemporary culture. A discussion of Robert Louis Stevenson's Strange Case of Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde sets the stage for a reading of Charlie Chaplin's “Pawnshop” and a closing section organized around Immanuel Kant's “The End of All Things.”

Keywords:   Jekyll and Hyde, Charlie Chaplin, Immanuel Kant, teleology
