This chapter re-examines the debate about ideology, with a focus on argument in the 1990s. It analyses the books Ideology and Modern Culture by John B. Thompson and Ideology by Teun A. van Dijk, and Mark Edmundson's article on the problems of cultural criticism. The analysis suggests that, around the idea of ideology, there is no coherent theoretical scheme that can effectively guide the analysis of the ways in which meanings and values relate to material interests.
