5.0 out of 5 stars A foundational text on the analysis of postmodernism, 15 Mar 2000
By 
pop95mlt@sheffield.ac.uk (University of Sheffield, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Postmodernism: Or, the Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism (Poetics of Social Forms) (Paperback)
Jameson's book stands out as one of two major original contributions to the analysis of postmodernism (the other being David Harvey's Postmodern Condition). Sympathetic to Marxism, Jameson draws on Ernest Mandel's notion of late capitalism to suggest that postmodernism is the cultural logic of a distinct phase of capitalism. no analysis of review of postmodernism could exclude this foundational text.

4.0 out of 5 stars The bible of postmodernism, 11 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Postmodernism: Or, the Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism (Poetics of Social Forms) (Paperback)
Although Jameson's style is dense and difficult at time, repeated readings of the text make his points clear. The points he makes are enlightened and incredibly well informed. It occasionally lacks examples of the theory, but the examples he does make reference some very interesting material. A must have for anyone interested in media studies, cultural theory and philosophy.
