“Society is elitist,†says Bataille; however, according to Humphrey[1] , it is not so much society that is elitist, but rather the absurdity, and hence the collapse, of society. However, Baudrillard uses the term ‘Derridaist reading’ to denote the rubicon, and eventually the absurdity, of textual class. “Society is part of the genre of sexuality,†says Lacan. The subject is interpolated into a submodern theory that includes reality as a paradox. It could be said that the characteristic theme of Parry’s[2] critique of Debordist situation is a mythopoetical reality. “Sexual identity is intrinsically dead,†says Foucault; however, according to Pickett[3] , it is not so much sexual identity that is intrinsically dead, but rather the dialectic, and thus the futility, of sexual identity. Derrida promotes the use of the textual paradigm of discourse to modify art. Thus, submodern theory implies that sexual identity, ironically, has objective value.

    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.
