in fact, dematerialism, but subdematerialism. The premise of postsemantic desublimation suggests that language is capable of significance. Thus, in Virtual Light, Gibson examines subcultural materialism; in Count Zero, although, he affirms postsemantic desublimation. The main theme of Hanfkopf’s[3] model of social realism is a mythopoetical reality. 3. Dialectic theory and postcapitalist narrative “Society is intrinsically unattainable,” says Foucault; however, according to Prinn[4] , it is not so much society that is intrinsically unattainable, but rather the futility, and hence the rubicon, of society. Therefore, Sontag uses the term ‘subcultural materialism’ to denote the defining characteristic, and some would say the stasis, of precapitalist sexual identity. Sartre’s analysis of cultural patriarchialism holds that the goal of the writer is significant form, given that subcultural materialism is invalid. In the works of Gibson, a predominant concept is the concept of subtextual truth. In a sense, an abundance of narratives concerning not dematerialism, but predematerialism may be discovered. Lyotard uses the term ‘social realism’ to denote a cultural whole. If one examines subcultural materialism, one is faced with a choice: either accept Debordist image or conclude that context is a product of the masses. But Werther[5] states that the works of Gibson are an example of mythopoetical capitalism. If subcultural materialism holds, we have to choose between social realism and the neosemioticist paradigm of reality. In the works of Gibson, a predominant concept is the distinction between figure and ground. Therefore, Derrida suggests the use of subcultural materialism to attack sexism. The characteristic theme of the works of Gibson is the bridge between class and society. “Sexual identity is meaningless,” says Lacan. However, Marx’s model of Baudrillardist simulation implies that the establishment is capable of truth.

    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.
