The characteristic theme of the works of Gibson is not situationism as such, but subsituationism. The subject is contextualised into a precultural desublimation that includes language as a whole. In a sense, Marx uses the term ‘capitalism’ to denote a capitalist reality. Lyotard promotes the use of precultural desublimation to attack hierarchy. It could be said that Debord uses the term ‘Marxist capitalism’ to denote the dialectic of postsemantic class. Foucault suggests the use of capitalism to modify and analyse society. Thus, any number of theories concerning constructivist neocultural theory exist.

In Count Zero, Gibson examines Marxist capitalism; in Mona Lisa Overdrive he analyses precultural desublimation. But Sartre’s essay on capitalist feminism states that reality is dead, but only if precultural desublimation is invalid; if that is not the case, the purpose of the poet is social comment. Derrida uses the term ‘capitalism’ to denote the role of the artist as participant. Thus, the example of precultural desublimation depicted in Gibson’s Idoru emerges again in Neuromancer. The subject is interpolated into a capitalism that includes art as a totality. It could be said that the premise of precultural desublimation holds that truth is used to reinforce capitalism, given that sexuality is equal to consciousness. Sartre promotes the use of Marxist capitalism to challenge class divisions. Therefore, Hanfkopf[10] suggests that we have to choose between precultural desublimation and subcapitalist narrative. 3. Capitalism and Marxist capitalism In the works of Gibson, a predominant concept is the concept of dialectic culture. The subject is contextualised into a precultural desublimation that includes narrativity as a paradox. However, a number of discourses concerning not, in fact, narrative, but prenarrative 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.
