The prepatriarchial paradigm of context and Debordist image

in General Discussion edited January 2014
In the works of Pynchon, a predominant concept is the distinction between figure and ground. However, the premise of deconstructivist neocultural theory implies that reality is a product of the collective unconscious, given that art is distinct from consciousness. Many narratives concerning the common ground between class and society may be revealed.

In a sense, Lyotard promotes the use of the postcultural paradigm of narrative to deconstruct class divisions. The primary theme of the works of Pynchon is a mythopoetical totality.

Thus, the subject is contextualised into a constructive submaterialist theory that includes sexuality as a reality. Hamburger[1] suggests that we have to choose between the postcultural paradigm of narrative and the dialectic paradigm of narrative. However, if Debordist image holds, the works of Pynchon are not postmodern. A number of discourses concerning constructive submaterialist theory exist.


Check out the post modernism thesis generator. Basically it is a cgi script that randomly generates a postmodernism paper that is really funny to read. The really scary part of it is that some Universities have professors on their payroll who write stuff like this.

Everytime you refresh the page a new paper is generated.

    Well . . . I just skimmed super fast and your blurb is completely wrong about Pynchon: mythopoetic totality is exactly the oposite of what his work is after . . .allthough it does sorta says that schizophrenic-paranoia results in desparate attempts at mythopoetic totality . . . .*ehem* . . . .

    and besides teh "Debordist image" is a condition that we all undergo . . .not a theorist that can 'hold' or etc . . . From Guy Debord's Society of the Spectacle . .

    but yes . . ha ha . . . post-structuralist prose: all too easy to make fun of, and too hard to actually try and undesrtand

    Hahaha...whew! When I first started reading the thread opener, I thought " way...ugh..." and my next impulse was to go "who turned pfflam loose? It's HIM...that's EXACTLY how he talks!!!"

    Glad to see that it is indeed a joke.

    BTW, that's no slam on pfflam...obviously a smart, enlightened fella.

    I just never know what the fück he's talking about. Ever.

    But I'd imagine he probably likes it that way.

    No, in all honesty I wish that you would understand me

    at least to make an effort to do so.

    Lighten up, p. It's a joke. I'll decide when it's worth the "effort". \
