Fredric Jameson, the leading marxist critic and theorist in the anglo-american world, since his first book dedicated to Sartre as writer and philosopher, proposed a reading of the most important concepts of the Critique de la raison dialectique, directed toward an investigation of the capitalism as abstract phenomenon of totalization. The aim of these considerations is to discuss the legacy of sartrean concepts in a contemporary marxist philosophy of totality, in which the reason is grasped in his formal movements: in particular way, the late Jameson moved to an actualization of the sartrean dialectic and proposed a ‘poetic of totality’, in which aesthetics and politics find a philosophical relation as forms of resistance to the capitalist totality.
