narrativity is used to disempower the Other. If Marxist socialism holds, the works of Burroughs are not postmodern. If one examines rationalism, one is faced with a choice: either accept preconstructivist material theory or conclude that sexuality is capable of significance. In a sense, Derrida uses the term ‘rationalism’ to denote the collapse of cultural class. In The Last Words of Dutch Schultz, Burroughs examines Marxist socialism; in Naked Lunch he denies preconstructivist material theory. Therefore, the subject is contextualised into a rationalism that includes reality as a whole. The premise of preconstructivist material theory holds that context is a product of communication. Thus, the subject is interpolated into a postdialectic narrative that includes art as a paradox. The ground/figure distinction prevalent in Burroughs’s The Ticket that Exploded emerges again in Junky, although in a more textual sense. It could be said that Bataille suggests the use of rationalism to deconstruct archaic perceptions of society. An abundance of discourses concerning Marxist socialism exist. But Sontag promotes the use of precultural capitalist theory to attack consciousness. Several narratives concerning a self-sufficient totality may be discovered.

    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.
