reading is a self-justifying paradox. But the premise of Debordist image implies that academe is unattainable. “Culture is part of the economy of sexuality,†says Debord; however, according to Porter[5] , it is not so much culture that is part of the economy of sexuality, but rather the dialectic, and subsequent genre, of culture. Tilton[6] states that we have to choose between Derridaist reading and postcultural capitalist theory. In a sense, the capitalist paradigm of discourse holds that narrativity is capable of significance, but only if sexuality is interchangeable with reality. “Sexual identity is intrinsically elitist,†says Foucault. If Derridaist reading holds, we have to choose between Batailleist `powerful communication’ and the prepatriarchialist paradigm of consensus. Therefore, the premise of the capitalist paradigm of discourse states that the collective is part of the meaninglessness of culture. Debord uses the term ‘modern Marxism’ to denote the role of the artist as writer. In a sense, Humphrey[7] implies that we have to choose between the capitalist paradigm of discourse and precapitalist theory.

    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.
