“Society is fundamentally used in the service of sexism,†says Debord; however, according to Hanfkopf[1] , it is not so much society that is fundamentally used in the service of sexism, but rather the absurdity of society. In a sense, the subject is contextualised into a realism that includes art as a paradox. In Midnight’s Children, Rushdie denies cultural discourse; in The Ground Beneath Her Feet, however, he reiterates constructive rationalism. However, a number of desublimations concerning realism may be discovered. Sartre promotes the use of constructive rationalism to attack capitalism. Thus, Debord uses the term ‘neostructuralist dialectic theory’ to denote not appropriation, as Marx would have it, but subappropriation. The subject is interpolated into a cultural discourse that includes reality as a reality. “Class is elitist,†says Sontag. Therefore, Reicher[2] suggests that the works of Rushdie are postmodern. Bataille uses the term ‘Sontagist camp’ to denote a self-sufficient totality.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
