  • Descrizione: this chapter presents central figures related to the origins and evolution of postmodernist theory and culture. these names starting with the alphabet j include: fredric jameson and charles jencks. for jameson's distinction between representation and simulation to hold, there ought to be nothing fetishistic about the van gogh shoes; and yet derrida's point is that it is the suppression of this possibility which enables both heidegger and schapiro to debate the identity of the very object that the painting represents. charles jencks saw pruitt‐igoe as an example of the hubris of international style architecture. meanwhile, jencks himself could rightly lay claim to first mover advantage in developing the concept of postmodern architecture. his book the language of post‐modern architecture established and guided what soon became a dominant topic and some familiar tropes in urban design across the 1980s and 1990s.
