Inhaltsangabe: Representing Capital, Fredric Jameson's first book-length engagement with Marx's magnum opus, is a unique work of scholarship that records the progression of Marx's thought as if it were a musical score. The textual landscape that emerges is the setting for paradoxes and contradictions that struggle toward resolution, giving rise to new antinomies and a new forward movement. These immense segments overlap each other to combine and develop on new levels in the same way that capital itself does, stumbling against obstacles that it overcomes by progressive expansions, which are in themselves so many leaps into the unknown. Marx's fundamental concepts are not presented philosophically, or in socialscientific terms, but rather as a series of figures produced by the development of the text. Jameson grasps Marx's work as a representational problem and an experiment in constructing the figure or model of the inexpressible phenomenon that is capital.
Fredric Jameson is America's leading Marxist critic. A prodigiously energetic thinker whose writings sweep majestically from Sophocles to science fiction. --Terry Eagleton
Praise for Archaeologies of the Future: Jameson's skill in connecting diverse materials and theories, the suggestiveness of many of his insights and his passionate conviction make this an exciting book. --Times Literary Supplement
Praise for Postmodernism, Or, The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism: One of the most persuasive cognitive maps of the evolution of culture in the West in the period from the mid-twentieth century to the present day. --J. M. Coetzee
