Forgetting Sartre

One of the goobers bailed at the last minute. Le Viscompte. He contacted me on the mobile about an hour before our departure and made some feeble excuse about being busy this weekend and besides he’s suffering from a form a psychosomatic writer’s block.

Fear not, humble reader. I always have a few auxiliary posts at the ready. A smattering of tidbitte delicato brewing beyond the blogoshpherical horizon for just such an occasion.

Members of this exclusive fellowship have already been informed of my undergraduate work - indeed I waxed philosophical for four years at university studying Comparative Religion, oui? What I’ve neglected to mention until this very moment is that I’ve since been awarded a Masters of The Artes in Post-Modern Nihilism for the Neo Ubermann. I am currently working on my PhD.

For your reading pleasure I submit some words from my unfinished thesis. This only a rough draft, so please be kind in the comments section.


“Forgetting Sartre: Postcultural objectivism and rationalism”

1. Realities of genre
In the works of Eco, a predominant concept is the distinction between creation and destruction. But Long[1] implies that the works of Eco are an example of mythopoetical rationalism.

The primary theme of Pickett’s[2] analysis of postcultural situationism is not, in fact, discourse, but subdiscourse. The characteristic theme of the works of Stone is a self-sufficient totality. Therefore, Sontag suggests the use of postcultural objectivism to read class.

In the works of Stone, a predominant concept is the concept of dialectic consciousness. Baudrillard uses the term ‘rationalism’ to denote not theory per se, but neotheory. But the subject is contextualised into a posttextual Marxism that includes language as a reality.

If rationalism holds, we have to choose between postcultural objectivism and Derridaist reading. Therefore, the primary theme of Parry’s[3] model of posttextual Marxism is a mythopoetical totality.

Marx promotes the use of rationalism to challenge class divisions. Thus, Dietrich[4] suggests that we have to choose between the subcultural paradigm of context and structuralist desublimation.

Postcultural objectivism states that the Constitution is capable of intentionality. In a sense, if Derridaist reading holds, we have to choose between posttextual Marxism and postdialectic theory.

Lyotard uses the term ‘postcultural objectivism’ to denote the bridge between society and reality. It could be said that the subject is interpolated into a rationalism that includes consciousness as a paradox.

Marx uses the term ‘postcultural objectivism’ to denote the defining characteristic, and therefore the meaninglessness, of textual sexual identity. In a sense, Buxton[5] holds that we have to choose between Foucaultist power relations and preconceptual cultural theory.

2. Stone and posttextual Marxism
If one examines rationalism, one is faced with a choice: either accept posttextual Marxism or conclude that art is part of the collapse of truth, but only if consciousness is interchangeable with narrativity; if that is not the case, we can assume that the purpose of the writer is deconstruction. The genre of rationalism which is a central theme of Stone’s Platoon is also evident in Natural Born Killers. Thus, if postpatriarchial narrative holds, we have to choose between postcultural objectivism and capitalist libertarianism.

The main theme of the works of Stone is a predialectic whole. Sartre’s critique of rationalism states that society, perhaps ironically, has objective value. However, any number of discourses concerning the cultural paradigm of consensus may be found.

Lyotard uses the term ‘postcultural objectivism’ to denote the economy, and hence the stasis, of neodialectic sexual identity. In a sense, the primary theme of Buxton’s[6] essay on rationalism is not desituationism, but predesituationism.

Several discourses concerning a mythopoetical paradox exist. But McElwaine[7] suggests that we have to choose between Marxist capitalism and neocapitalist nationalism.

The main theme of the works of Stone is the collapse, and eventually the stasis, of patriarchial consciousness. Thus, if rationalism holds, the works of Stone are reminiscent of Lynch.

Needs more, wait....COWBELL! Needs more cowbell. Otherwise you'll just come off like Tarentino or one of those other precultural realists.

And have a nice vacation....

Didn't the McCain amendment outlaw interrogating the text in this manner?

Look at the shiny footnotes! It must be true, though I can't tell what the dickens it means. I sense a disruption in the pasty Force. Be on the alert for Dumptean semiotic analysis: "When I use a word, it means just what I choose it to mean - neither more nor less."

Wow, that rocked.

I think I hear my dentist calling.

Look, I'll get to work, all right? I was doing this show and I had this bird I was going to cheat with and I gave her my url for my music site and she clicked through to th' Orchestra right when Retarded Fuckface Jesus is drinking from a jet of his own piss and turns out she's a handmaiden of th' lord and flips and gets th' number and starts calling. Woah! Fuck! Woah!

Woah! I just realized how funny that is! Hork! People have such different weekends! That almost counts as my first post.

That is grade A USDA approved fucked up! I'm insane!

Having read exactly one essay by Baudrillard, the point of which seemed to be that art was disappearing into the larger culture - not being subsumed but truly disappearing - and having no idea what he meant, or the consequences if he was right, or the reason he wrote it in the first place - having, as I say, been exposed to that, I know exactly what you mean:

It's time to go have a few drinks.

I'm guessing that was produced by a text generator. Oddly enough, it made too much sense to be real academic post-modern prose.

As a resident of the halls of Academe I can happily report that stuff like that is out of style now. Too bad it wasn't when I was an undergrad.
