I could quote rhetorical gems from every paragraph in this introduction. I forgot how fun Jameson is to read.
[4.5 months ago]
Another great one from Jameson in this introduction: "our utter forgetfulness of the past exhausted itself in the vacant but mesmerized contemplation of a schizophrenic present that is incomparable virtually by definition."
[4.5 months ago]
lol Jameson: "this unforeseeable return of narrative as the narrative of the end of narratives"
[4.5 months ago]
Another nice insight: Jameson rejects postmodernism as a social order -- and in that sense it does sort of operate ahistorically as just a new permutation of capitalism; a conservative absorption of culture, not a progression.
[4.5 months ago]
We're just passing full bloom postmodernism I think. The flowers are wilting, we're trying to find nature again... it's impressive that Jameson was writing these observations when late capitalism was just starting to show its budding colors. He also lo...

It's extremely basic but I like that I could cobble together a twtxt feed reader so easily. I'd like better formatting & mention support, but it's something!
