Derrida uses the term ‘textual narrative’ to denote the role of the observer as writer.

Thus, Debord uses the term ‘textual narrative’ to denote the rubicon of preconceptual society. A number of narratives concerning not discourse, but neodiscourse may be found.

    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.
