Anti-essentialism—many of the notions previously regarded as universal and fixed (gender identity, individual selfhood) are actually fluid and unstable. These are socially constructed or contingent categories rather than absolute or essential ones.
All thinking and investigation is affected by prior ideological commitments. There is no disinterested enquiry.
“Language itself conditions, limits, and predetermines what we see. Language doesn’t record reality but constructs it. Meaning in texts is jointly constructed by the reader and writer.
4. “Theorists distrust all totalizing notions” (great books, human nature)
politics is pervasive
language is constituative
Truth is provisional
Meaning is contingent
Human nature is a myth.
“Metafiction is a term given to fictional writing which self-consciously and systematically draws attention to its status as an artifact in order to pose questions about the relationship between fiction and reality. In providing a critique of their own methods of construction, such writings not only examine the fundamental structures of narrative fiction, they also explore the possible fictionality of the world outside the literary fictional text.”
