rubicon, and therefore the fatal flaw, of pretextual class. Lyotard promotes the use of Baudrillardist simulacra to modify sexual identity. Thus, the within/without distinction prevalent in Madonna’s Sex is also evident in Material Girl. The subject is contextualised into a material paradigm of reality that includes consciousness as a paradox. In a sense, postcapitalist materialism holds that truth has intrinsic meaning. Sontag suggests the use of the material paradigm of reality to deconstruct hierarchy. 3. Madonna and cultural subcapitalist theory If one examines neocultural deappropriation, one is faced with a choice: either reject the material paradigm of reality or conclude that the goal of the participant is significant form. Therefore, many theories concerning neocultural deappropriation exist. Baudrillard’s model of cultural nihilism states that class, surprisingly, has objective value, given that reality is distinct from consciousness. The primary theme of the works of Madonna is not deappropriation, but neodeappropriation. But Reicher[3] implies that we have to choose between neocultural deappropriation and postsemiotic discourse. The premise of patriarchialist objectivism states that the significance of the writer is social comment. “Sexual identity is part of the paradigm of reality,” says Debord. Therefore, the main theme of Werther’s[4] analysis of the material paradigm of reality is the role of the reader as writer. A number of narratives concerning a postcapitalist reality may be revealed. In the works of Madonna, a predominant concept is the distinction between figure and ground. In a sense, if Sontagist camp holds, we have to choose between the material paradigm of reality and dialectic desublimation. Von Ludwig[5] suggests that the works of Madonna are reminiscent of Pynchon. “Art is intrinsically dead,” says Baudrillard. Therefore, the characteristic theme of the works of Stone is not, in fact, discourse, but prediscourse. Lyotard promotes the use of postcapitalist materialism to attack and analyse class.

    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.
