None of the histories of postmodernism systematically surveys its counterpart anti-postmodernism, which is a pity since it comprises much of the most enjoyable writing on the subject. This subgenre boasts a handful of recognizable traits: it lands devastating 38 DIGIMODERNISM blows on its subject, leaving it battered and bleeding; it can never finish its subject off, which survives, apparently indestructible, until another day; and it is invariably backward-looking in its intellectual wish list.

The deconstructionist . . is supposed not to believe in truth, stability, or the unity of meaning, in intention or “meaning-to-say” . . this definition of the deconstructionist is false (that’s right: false, not true) and feeble; it supposes a bad (that’s right: bad, not good) and feeble reading of numerous texts, first of all mine, which therefore must finally be read or reread. 45 This is not to “defang” Derrida, nor to commit the intentional fallacy.
