The Postmodern Condition: A Report on Knowledge (Theory and History of Literature, Volume 10)
Jean-Francois Lyotard

The Antinomies Of Realism
Fredric Jameson

Verso, 2013

The Antinomies of Realism is a history ofthe nineteenth-century realist novel and its legacy told without a glimmer of nostalgia for artistic achievements that the movement of history makes it impossible to recreate.

Novels to emerge since struggle to reconcile the social conditions of ...

The Hegel Variations: On the Phenomenology of Spirit
Fredric Jameson

Verso, 2010

In this major new study, philosopher and cultural theorist Fredric Jameson offers an innovative reading of a book that forms part of the bedrock of modern Western thought: Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit.

Hegel’s mind is revealed to be a less systematic mechanism than normally thought, one whose ...

Doing What Comes Naturally: Change, Rhetoric, and the Practice of Theory in Literary and Legal Studies
Stanley Fish

Duke University Press Books, 1989

In literary theory, the philosophy of law, and the sociology of knowledge, no issue has been more central to current debate than the status of our interpretations.

In Doing What Comes Naturally , Stanley Fish refuses the dilemma posed by this question and argues that while we can never separate our judgments from the contexts in which ...

Late Marxism: Adorno, Or, The Persistence of the Dialectic (Radical Thinkers)
Fredric Jameson

Verso, 2007

In the name of an assault on “totalization” and “identity,” a number of contemporary theorists have been busily washing Marxism’s dialectical and utopian projects down the plug-hole of postmodernism and “post-politics.” A case in point is recent interpretation of one of the greatest twentieth-century philosophers, Theodor Adorno. In this powerful book, Fredric Jameson proposes a radically different reading of Adorno’s work, ...

Our America: Nativism, Modernism, and Pluralism (Post-Contemporary Interventions)
Walter Benn Michaels

Duke University Press Books, 1997
