Fredric Jameson is without doubt one of the so much influential literary and cultural critics writing at the present time. he's a theoretical innovator whose rules concerning the intersections of politics and tradition have reshaped the serious panorama around the humanities and social sciences.

Being, by itself, is not its own evidence of itself. It is not equal to itself nor to its meaning. That's what existence is, that's what community is, and that's what exposes them. Each is the bringing into play of the other. The in play of the in common: what gives play, and birth, to thought, even to the "play" of these words in which, in reality, nothing less than our communication is exposed (a communication that is itself exposed to the lack of commonality, to the absence of "common measure" between language and the translucidness that we are presuming in a "communication" that would be communicating a supposed common sense instead of communicating the sense of "us").
In a sense, I will have done nothing here but repeat, reflect, recite that nothing —if that makes any sense. It is nothing, it is not a place, most of all it is not a dividing line between some inside and outside, yet it limits, and by limiting it also allows communication to happen, to take place. " For example, in another passage we read: To be exposed is to be on the limit where, at the same time, there is both inside and outside, and neither inside nor outside. . It is to be "in oneself" according to a partition [partage] of "self," .
That would imply an exteriority. (Even in love, one is "in" the other only outside the other. The child "in" its mother is also exterior in that interiority, although in quite another way. ) But "with" does not mean "next to," or "juxtaposed," either. The logic of the "with" —of the being-with, of the Mitsein that Heidegger makes contemporary and correlative with the Dasein—is the singular logic of an inside-outside. It is perhaps the very logic of singularity in general. And it would thus be the logic of what belongs neither to the pure inside nor to the pure outside.
