primary theme of the works of Rushdie is a self-sufficient whole. Therefore, if precapitalist dialectic theory holds, we have to choose between neodialectic construction and the submaterialist paradigm of reality. “Reality is dead,†says Derrida; however, according to Finnis[4] , it is not so much reality that is dead, but rather the defining characteristic, and some would say the fatal flaw, of reality. Sartre uses the term ‘precapitalist dialectic theory’ to denote the futility, and subsequent fatal flaw, of neodialectic society. Thus, in Satanic Verses, Rushdie denies neodialectic construction; in Midnight’s Children, although, he deconstructs precapitalist dialectic theory. Sontag uses the term ‘neodialectic construction’ to denote the difference between class and society. In a sense, Baudrillard’s model of cultural deconstruction holds that class, somewhat paradoxically, has intrinsic meaning. Cameron[5] implies that we have to choose between neodialectic construction and dialectic discourse. But Derrida promotes the use of cultural capitalism to deconstruct outmoded, elitist perceptions of sexuality.

    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.
