jaws 2

but there is some chance that [Adorno] may turn out to have been the analyst of our own period, which he did not live to see, and in which late capitalism has all but succeeded in eliminating the final loopholes of nature and the Uncounscious, of subversion and the aesthetic, of individual and collective praxis alike, and, with a final fillip, in eliminating any memory trace of what thereby no longer existed in the henceforth postmodern landscape. it now seems to me possible, then, that Adorno’s Marxism, which was no great help in the previous periods, may turn out to be just what we need today.

    I did an author search for Fred Jameson at the NDSU library and nothing came up. I’m in Ag country. Jameson doesn’t reside here, me thinks.
