Please Can Some Translate This Into Normal Text?

Postby Your Friendly Neighbourhood Postman » 21 Sep 2017, 11:15

“Sexual identity is dead,” says Derrida. It could be said that the
characteristic theme of the works of Fellini is the stasis, and hence the
paradigm, of conceptual class. The postmaterialist paradigm of consensus holds
that the media is part of the absurdity of narrativity.

The main theme of Wilson’s[10] essay on the capitalist
paradigm of consensus is a mythopoetical reality. But the feminine/masculine
distinction depicted in Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist As a Young Man
emerges again in Ulysses. The subject is contextualised into a Marxist
socialism that includes reality as a whole.
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.

Trying to hard to mix socialism, gender, and sex in to one statement or definition. Basically trying to be too smart for their own good.

To be honest, I found this gem via a site that calls itself a 'postmodern text generator'. Just click, and any genuine 'essay' will roll out, complete with bogus 'references and footnotes'. The problem is, needless to say, that the outcomes don't really differ that much from what's published out there in the real world, in certain disciplines of academe, and which generates attention, adulation, and money.

Emperor. Clothes.

The background is serious, though. I was looking up material by Alan Sokal and Jean Bricmont. The former did one of the most famous (and rightfully so) scientific hoaxes of modern times:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sokal_affair

...and thus, the "Science Wars" were sparked.

I don't know, it could come in handy when we are looking for a piece to back up a point we made.

:lol:

It might! Just generate a piece of text that very vaguely seems to support your argument - and hey! You got intellectual gravitas at the ready.

(Mind: there are students and academics whose work in not really discernible from this method. IIRC some postmodernists really think that the natural sciences are a social construction (male in orientation). Alan Sokal (see above) invited one of them (in jest) to come visit him (he works on the 21th floor), and jump out of the window. Just to experience first-hand whether gravity, mass, time, and acceleration are merely 'social constructs'.

Ha, Maarts -

I do too! It just... sounds well. And taken out of context, it's applicable to nearly all themes under the sun. For all I know, it might work seductively in certain situations.

Astonishingly beautiful. It far surpasses the original. I turned the original into German, and Dutch - to no aesthetic avail.
