Product Details


“Yields a series of audacious reading of a ‘non-teleological’ Hegel, throwing a distinctive light on such themes as master-slave dialectic, linguistic subjectivity, expressive production (‘the animal kingdom of spirit’), normative division in the Antigone (inaugurating chapter 6, ‘Spirit’), and the French Revolution.”

“Fredric Jameson is America’s leading Marxist critic. A prodigiously energetic thinker whose writings sweep majestically from Sophocles to science fiction.”
−Terry Eagleton

“Probably the most important cultural critic writing in English today … It can be truly said that nothing cultural is alien to him.”
−Colin MacCabe

“Jameson establishes the revisionist nature of his latest study from the very outset. For a work on a Hegel it is a conspicuously short but nonetheless fascinating work, one which encompasses all of the elliptical nuances, digressions and expansive inter-disciplinary scholarship which has characterized his past studies.”
Glasgow Review of Books

Variations shows how tenaciously Jameson wrestles with his angel to complicate further his relationship to Hegelian Marxism.”
—Peter Hitchcock, Mediations
