Adapting to Cultural Change

Fredric Jameson

In this session in English and with Spanish subtitles, the career of American philosopher Fredric Jameson is characterised by his permanent intellectual evolution; a career that commenced with his doctoral dissertation about Jean-Paul Sartre in the 1950s and continued with dialectical criticism and semiotics until he became one of the most outstanding theoretical exponents of postmodernism from a multifaceted intellectual perspective with an emphasis on audio-visual media. Ramón del Castillo addresses this autobiographical reflection with him, paying special attention to his style, his way of seeing and doing things, and understanding culture. Jameson claims that the sharpness of the intellectual of our time is not a matter of producing solutions but producing problems.
