1. Capitalism and the postpatriarchial paradigm of consensus

The characteristic theme of Werther’s[1] critique of neotextual deconceptualism is the bridge between class and culture. Therefore, Sontag promotes the use of constructivist theory to read and deconstruct society.

In the works of Madonna, a predominant concept is the distinction between opening and closing. The postpatriarchial paradigm of consensus suggests that academe is intrinsically used in the service of outmoded perceptions of sexual identity, given that Lacan’s essay on modernist libertarianism is invalid. But von Junz[2] holds that we have to choose between capitalism and subtextual sublimation.

Sartre suggests the use of the postpatriarchial paradigm of consensus to attack the status quo. In a sense, a number of desituationisms concerning not, in fact, theory, but pretheory may be revealed.

If capitalism holds, we have to choose between the postpatriarchial paradigm of consensus and the deconstructive paradigm of consensus. However, constructivist theory states that class has significance.

In Chasing Amy, Smith affirms postconstructivist narrative; in Mallrats he denies capitalism. But Lyotard promotes the use of constructivist theory to read sexual identity.

2. Discourses of failure

If one examines structural Marxism, one is faced with a choice: either reject the postpatriarchial paradigm of consensus or conclude that language is meaningless. The main theme of the works of Smith is a subcapitalist totality. It could be said that the ground/figure distinction which is a central theme of Smith’s Chasing Amy is also evident in Dogma, although in a more mythopoetical sense.

Lacan uses the term ‘dialectic materialism’ to denote not depatriarchialism, but predepatriarchialism. In a sense, de Selby[3] implies that we have to choose between capitalism and textual Marxism.

Many discourses concerning postmaterialist theory exist. But if the postpatriarchial paradigm of consensus holds, we have to choose between constructivist theory and Sontagist camp.

Foucault’s model of the postpatriarchial paradigm of consensus states that society, somewhat paradoxically, has objective value. In a sense, several depatriarchialisms concerning the role of the poet as participant may be discovered.

lol είχα διαβάσει στην Ψηφιακή Ζωή πρώτη φορά για αυτήν την μηχανή παραγωγής μεταμοντέρνων κειμένων. Τον σύνδεσμο τον βρήκα στο So What!, περισσότερα για τους Ασυνάρτητους (lol) στο blog του Ν. Δήμου.
