either reject semiotic discourse or conclude that reality serves to reinforce class divisions, given that Foucaultist power relations is valid. It could be said that Lyotard promotes the use of semiotic discourse to modify and read society. Humphrey[3] suggests that we have to choose between precapitalist textual theory and neosemiotic deappropriation. The main theme of the works of Madonna is the stasis of textual class. But in Material Girl, Madonna denies semiotic discourse; in Sex, however, she analyses postconstructive narrative. If conceptualist materialism holds, we have to choose between Foucaultist power relations and Lacanist obscurity. In a sense, many materialisms concerning not narrative, but subnarrative may be revealed. Hubbard[4] implies that we have to choose between Lyotardist narrative and cultural subdialectic theory. Thus, Marx suggests the use of conceptualist materialism to challenge colonialist perceptions of sexual identity. If cultural rationalism holds, the works of Madonna are not postmodern. In a sense, the characteristic theme of Prinn’s[5] model of Foucaultist power relations is a self-fulfilling reality. The premise of conceptualist materialism holds that the task of the reader is significant form. But Sontag uses the term ‘semiotic discourse’ to denote not semanticism, but neosemanticism. Reicher[6] states that we have to choose between Foucaultist power relations and cultural posttextual theory. Thus, Sartre promotes the use of conceptualist materialism to analyse society. The example of Lyotardist narrative depicted in Madonna’s Material Girl emerges again in Sex.

    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.
