Jameson is attempting to understand the postmodernism. In 1991, the author saw many crises throughout board, crises predominantly in context of the “end” of that or this. The series of crises occurred amid the modernism’s waning; more particularly, modernism of high level. The outcomes appears to be the “waning of affect,” or “deathlessness,” or “normlessness”. The modern life’s sheer speed, as Benjamin and Simmel perceived, may have somewhat to do with an aim of estrangement from phenomena and others in the urban life. Radical, prevalent misconception. It is to state that symbol’s social function and meaning— art, culture all—has been replaced and disrupted within paradigm of postmodernism; this exactness is essential since Jameson states that not all contemporary occurrences are postmodern (Jameson, 1991).
