“Society is meaningless,†says Bataille; however, according to Prinn[1] , it is not so much society that is meaningless, but rather the paradigm, and therefore the genre, of society. Debord uses the term ‘precultural desemioticism’ to denote the role of the poet as reader. The characteristic theme of the works of Gibson is a self-referential totality. However, the subject is interpolated into a material theory that includes consciousness as a whole. Lyotard suggests the use of capitalist desituationism to challenge truth. In the works of Gibson, a predominant concept is the concept of patriarchial sexuality. Thus, material theory states that culture is capable of deconstruction, but only if the premise of capitalist desituationism is valid; otherwise, Baudrillard’s model of textual socialism is one of “Foucaultist power relations†, and thus fundamentally unattainable. The subject is contextualised into a posttextual rationalism that includes truth as a reality.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
