Cognitive Mapping in the Postmodern Novel: Philip K. Dick's "Ubik", Kim Stanley Robinson's, The Gold Coast, and Don DeLillo's, White Noise.

2013, BA, Kent State University, College of Arts and Sciences / Department of English.
This thesis examines Fredric Jameson's theory of cognitive mapping in three different postmodern novels, Philip K. Dick's,Ubik, Kim Stanley Robinson's, The Gold Coast, and Don DeLillo's, White Noise. Among the topics discussed are the ways in which the technological suppression of nature affects the postmodern subject's ability to map cognitively his social and cultural environment, as well as how a fixation on images in the postmodern world creates a dissociation between subject and cultural environment.
