Fredric Jameson (b. 1934) is a Marxist political and literary critic and theorist. Jameson's best-known works include The Political Unconscious, Postmodernism: The Cultural Logic of Late Capitalism, and Marxism and Form; he has published dozens of books on politics, culture, and literature. Jameson's neo-Marxism, with its emphasis on social and historical totality, is strongly influenced by the philosophy of G.W.F. Hegel through the work of Georg Lukács in Marxist political and literary thought. He is also widely known as a theorist of postmodernism, as a description of the current historical condition at the end of the twentieth century, though Jameson is by no means a "post-modernist."
