Windom, I could really use Virilio's 'City of Panic' or 'Negative Horizon' if either is available.


Hey Icarus, no can do I'm afraid. I don't actually scan these books myself, there are a few forums where people share books and articles. I've searched everywhere for these two books but they aren't there. I can request them and someone will hopefully scan and upload them, they have with other Virilio releases so they should be able to do this. Will keep you posted.

Well I am now looking at theological narrative trajectories which is exactly as entertaining as it sounds. I have done some reading (thank you Windom) outside the main curriculum and have been able to almost get into this and start to form some opinions. Once I have knocked this assignment out I will get involved if this thread still exists.

Icarus,

I agree with your point re: Social Text as a non-peer reviewed journal. I also agree with you insofar as as the Sokal incident is used as a lever by positivists and analytic philosophers to try to discredit 'Theory' as such.

I still think, however, that there are lessons to be learned from this whole situation: 1) don't be an anti-intellectualist, don't be too obsessed with ghetto-izing knowledge, but also don't be an intellectual tourist. If you want to critique some scientific discourse you better understand it pretty well on its own terms. 2) The fact that many positivists and 'technocrats' as you said (how do you use that word by they way? I'm not sure how you mean it here) are actually pretty fucking smart ought to be taken into consideration. The fact that Sokal's B.S. looked the same as 'Theory' to them, ought to tell people who work in the kind of discourse that he was mocking that maybe their language and manner of presentation is a bit absurd. I hate calls to "be clear" as much as the next academic--but I do think a lot of 1980's 'theory' was obscure for the fun of it.

I have to run.

This is funny because my independent study this semester is about hip-hop and postmodernism. I am using texts like Beloved and Endgame to explain certain aspects and problems we are seeing in hip-hop today. Fun stuff.

Try this book - Spectacular vernaculars : hip-hop and the politics of postmodernism by Russell A. Potter. Dunno if you've already read it

Cool. I particularly like this book:

Laclau's follow-up ('New Reflections...) is even better.

Oh man, I have the best Laclau story that I, unfortunately, can't tell here.
