Organizer/AuthorRon Kelch
Ron Kelch and Lew Finzel will lead off this latest "Dialog on the Dialectic."
Fredric Jameson, called by many the U.S.s leading cultural critic, has returned to the Hegelian dialectic in two recent works where he debunks many of the prevailing uses and criticisms of the dialectic, especially the notion that Hegel's absolute is any kind of terminus. Jameson also returns to Marx's dialectic in Capital through his own concept of an open, undefined utopia. Is Jameson's work adequate to the search for an alternative to capitalism today and to how Hegel and Marx saw the dialectic itself making a difference?
