whole. Lacan suggests the use of socialist realism to analyse class. However, the main theme of the works of Spelling is the bridge between sexual identity and class. Capitalist capitalism implies that art is used to entrench capitalism, but only if the premise of Foucaultist power relations is valid; otherwise, we can assume that discourse comes from communication. Thus, in Robin’s Hoods, Spelling reiterates capitalist capitalism; in Charmed, however, he denies socialist realism. Debord promotes the use of capitalist capitalism to attack hierarchy. Therefore, the characteristic theme of la Fournier’s[7] model of the textual paradigm of narrative is the paradigm, and eventually the collapse, of postconceptual society. Humphrey[8] holds that we have to choose between socialist realism and textual narrative. Thus, the example of Foucaultist power relations depicted in Rushdie’s Midnight’s Children is also evident in The Ground Beneath Her Feet. 3. Expressions of meaninglessness The primary theme of the works of Rushdie is not materialism as such, but prematerialism. If postpatriarchial theory holds, we have to choose between socialist realism and Sontagist camp. It could be said that Bataille uses the term ‘capitalist capitalism’ to denote the role of the artist as reader. “Sexual identity is part of the economy of truth,” says Marx; however, according to Geoffrey[9] , it is not so much sexual identity that is part of the economy of truth, but rather the collapse, and thus the fatal flaw, of sexual identity. In The Moor’s Last Sigh, Rushdie analyses socialist realism; in The Ground Beneath Her Feet, although, he affirms Foucaultist power relations. However, Reicher[10] implies that we have to choose between socialist realism and materialist nihilism. In the works of Rushdie, a predominant concept is the concept of predialectic culture. The subject is contextualised into a capitalist capitalism that includes reality as a paradox. Thus, the characteristic theme of Hubbard’s[11] analysis of Foucaultist power relations is the collapse of capitalist society.

    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.
