Quote from Barthes

July 28, 2014 — Leave a comment

This quote from Roland Barthes holds much significance regarding the trajectory of academic ideology between the early 1970’s and pehaps late 1990’s (approximation):

“{…} any statement can and does denounce the beourgeois or petit-beourgeois character of such and such a form (of life, of thought, of consumption). In other words, a mythological doxa has been created; denunciation, demystification (or demythification), has itself become discourse, stock of phrases, catechistic declaration.” from The Rustle of Language (originally published 1984)
