Social Realism and other catch phrases abound in academic writing. Since they are often little more than meaningless cliches the computer is able to string them together to create fake essays like the one you see below.|
Social realism and constructive discourse
A. Stefan McElwaine
Department of English, Oxford University
1. Subtextual materialist theory and postcapitalist feminism
“Sexual identity is part of the meaninglessness of narrativity,” says
Debord; however, according to Reicher , it is not so much
sexual identity that is part of the meaninglessness of narrativity, but rather
the collapse, and subsequent dialectic, of sexual identity. Thus, the
creation/destruction distinction intrinsic to Smith’s Clerks is also
evident in Chasing Amy, although in a more pretextual sense. The subject
is contextualised into a postcapitalist feminism that includes art as a
In the works of Smith, a predominant concept is the concept of
constructivist narrativity. In a sense, Lyotard promotes the use of
constructive discourse to attack the status quo. Marx uses the term
‘posttextual theory’ to denote a self-justifying totality.
Thus, Bataille suggests the use of social realism to modify and deconstruct
society. The subject is interpolated into a cultural neodeconstructive theory
that includes culture as a paradox.
But in Mallrats, Smith deconstructs constructive discourse; in
Dogma, however, he analyses social realism. The main theme of
Drucker’s analysis of postcapitalist feminism is the
bridge between class and sexual identity.
In a sense, Marx promotes the use of social realism to challenge sexism.
Foucault’s essay on Baudrillardist simulation states that discourse comes from
communication, but only if the premise of constructive discourse is valid; if
that is not the case, Foucault’s model of social realism is one of “pretextual
cultural theory”, and therefore fundamentally elitist.
2. Contexts of failure
The characteristic theme of the works of Smith is the role of the artist as
participant. Thus, an abundance of constructions concerning a posttextual whole
may be discovered. Constructive discourse holds that government is capable of
“Society is impossible,” says Sartre; however, according to Humphrey , it is not so much society that is impossible, but rather
the stasis of society. However, the subject is contextualised into a
postcapitalist feminism that includes reality as a reality. Buxton suggests that we have to choose between the cultural
paradigm of consensus and neotextual theory.
In a sense, Lyotard suggests the use of social realism to analyse society.
Sontag uses the term ‘postcapitalist feminism’ to denote not discourse, as
constructive discourse suggests, but subdiscourse.
However, Derrida promotes the use of dialectic posttextual theory to attack
class divisions. If social realism holds, we have to choose between the
structural paradigm of reality and pretextual semiotic theory.
Thus, the premise of postcapitalist feminism holds that consciousness may be
used to reinforce sexism. The example of Batailleist `powerful communication’
prevalent in Stone’s Platoon emerges again in Natural Born
3. Stone and postcapitalist feminism
“Sexual identity is part of the collapse of culture,” says Lacan. However,
any number of sublimations concerning submodernist capitalism exist. Debord
uses the term ‘postcapitalist feminism’ to denote a self-sufficient totality.
If one examines capitalist theory, one is faced with a choice: either reject
social realism or conclude that narrativity is capable of deconstruction. But
Pickett implies that we have to choose between
precultural constructivism and the textual paradigm of context. The primary
theme of Hanfkopf’s analysis of postcapitalist feminism
is not, in fact, desublimation, but predesublimation.
“Class is used in the service of outmoded, elitist perceptions of society,”
says Sontag; however, according to Hubbard , it is not so
much class that is used in the service of outmoded, elitist perceptions of
society, but rather the stasis, and subsequent meaninglessness, of class.
However, an abundance of discourses concerning a mythopoetical reality may be
revealed. The subject is interpolated into a constructive discourse that
includes culture as a totality.
Therefore, any number of theories concerning social realism exist. Bataille
uses the term ‘constructive discourse’ to denote not narrative as such, but
But Lyotard’s critique of subsemantic theory suggests that expression is
created by the masses, given that reality is interchangeable with language. In
Satanic Verses, Rushdie reiterates social realism; in The Moor’s Last
Sigh, although, he analyses constructive discourse.
It could be said that the subject is contextualised into a social realism
that includes art as a reality. Dialectic discourse implies that the law is
part of the stasis of language.
In a sense, if constructive discourse holds, we have to choose between
postcapitalist feminism and Foucaultist power relations. The subject is
interpolated into a constructive discourse that includes narrativity as a
But an abundance of constructions concerning the role of the writer as
artist may be found. The premise of postcultural narrative holds that the
raison d’etre of the observer is significant form.
4. Consensuses of economy
If one examines postcapitalist feminism, one is faced with a choice: either
accept constructive discourse or conclude that sexual identity, somewhat
paradoxically, has objective value. Therefore, the subject is contextualised
into a semioticist paradigm of reality that includes culture as a whole.
Constructive discourse implies that language is a legal fiction, given that
Marx’s analysis of neocultural dialectic theory is invalid.
In the works of Rushdie, a predominant concept is the distinction between
masculine and feminine. However, the main theme of the works of Rushdie is the
common ground between class and sexual identity. The subject is interpolated
into a postcapitalist feminism that includes consciousness as a paradox.
Thus, many theories concerning social realism exist. Derrida suggests the
use of postmodern objectivism to challenge and read society.
However, postcapitalist feminism holds that sexual identity has intrinsic
meaning. A number of narratives concerning not discourse, but subdiscourse may
It could be said that Baudrillard promotes the use of constructive discourse
to attack capitalism. The subject is contextualised into a textual theory that
includes art as a reality.
But Sargeant states that we have to choose between
postcapitalist feminism and the postdialectic paradigm of context. Several
discourses concerning conceptualist nihilism exist.
