Fredric Jameson quotes (showing 1-6 of 6)

“Insofar as the theorist wins, therefore, by constructing an increasingly closed and terrifying machine, to that very degree he loses, since the critical capacity of his work is thereby paralysed, and the impulses of negation and revolt, not to speak of those of social transformation, are increasingly perceived as vain and trivial in the face of the model itself.”
Fredric Jameson, Postmodernism, or, The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism
“Žižek seems to have got Hitchcock out of his system, if not out of his unconscious—one never does that.”
Fredric Jameson
“It is safest to grasp the concept of the postmodern as an attempt to think the present historically in an age that has forgotten how to think historically in the first place.”
Fredric Jameson, Postmodernism, or, The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism
“. . . it is a mistake to think that Marxism is simply a type of interpretation that takes the economic "sequence" as that ultimately privileged code into which the other sequences are to be translated. Rather, for Marxism the emergence of the economic, the coming into view of the infrastructure itself, is simply the sign of the approach of the concrete.”
Fredric Jameson, Marxism and Form: 20th-Century Dialectical Theories of Literature
“In modernism, as I will try to show later on, some residual zones of "nature" or "being" of the old, the older, the archaic, still subsist; culture can still do something to that nature and work at transforming that "referent." Postmodernism is what you have when the modernization process is complete and nature is gone for good.”
Fredric Jameson
“Kapitalisme lanjut memperdagangkan banyak hal yang dulunya tidak dianggap sebagai komoditas.”
Fredric Jameson
