Culture is a matrix
Culture is not a variable
Politics is in culture
Culture is political
Culture is in language
Language is political
There is no neutral language
We are in language
Authority is political and literary
Culture can be considered as a text
Literary devices have direct counterparts in political strategies
Culture constitutes the body and makes it readable
Gender, race, and sexuality are cultural constructs
Commodities serve as semiotic lexicons
The natural is a cultural category
Culture is an observable concept
Culture is made in practice
Culture, as practice, is continually changing
The formal is always accompanied by an informal counterpart, the structural by the antistructural and the unstructured
Change comes from the liminal
All cultures are syncretic
All cultures are exceptional. No culture is exceptional
Culture is wild and various
Subjects have multiple identities
Identities are performed
Identities have multiple expressions
Every identity is in reference to a collective
Identity and community are coeval
Identity and alienation are coeval
Every political institution calls for identities
Identities make interests. Interests make identities
There are no "interests." There are "interests of" and "interests as."
Every identity is partial
Community entails alienation
Belonging may be expressed as affirmation or rebellion
Each institution calls for its own resistance
There is no culture without resistance
There is no culture without internal critique
Meaning is made out of difference
Power is productive
Opposition is productive
Lack impels. Lack is productive
Power comes from the absence of power
The most effective domination is internal
The most effective rule is invisible and appears as inevitable
Domination is through and of the senses
Prohibitions produce institutions and resistances. Prohibitions interpellate identities
Ruling structures constrain the rulers as well as the ruled, the advantaged as well as the disadvantaged
That which is overcome, remains
Nothing runs ahead of its time. Many things run ahead of their time
Facts do not speak for themselves
Facts are made
Facts are artifacts of the methods that produce them
There are no neutral methods
There are no neutral scientists
Work speaks simultaneously of its ostensible object and of its author and context
There are no general laws
There is no evidence. Evidence is always of and for something
Nothing is noncontributory
That which is omitted, absent, and silent is as important as that which is committed, present, and conspicuous
Description entails analysis
No account can be comprehensive
Representation alters the represented
Quantification is distortion
Formality obscures more than it clarifies
Every method has an evaluative hierarchy
Every method has an aesthetic
Parsimony is an aesthetic criterion
The form in which something is expressed determines its meaning. The signifier constitutes the meaning of the sign
Surfaces are as meaningful as that which lies beneath them
Name constitute. Categories constitute
All categories are subject to an interior articulation and to an articulation of their relations with others. No category is internally homogenous, or independent
Correlation does not establish causality
Accurate prediction is not proof of correct reasoning
Replication is not proof
Repetitions alter what they repeat
Falsifiability does not establish validity. Falsifiability is not a necessary attribute of a theory, nor an index of superiority
Subjective satisfaction is not an index of the truth or the merit of a theory
Systems of knowledge are systems of power
Truth is a cultural category. Truth is in culture
Experience confers only a limited understanding
Lies and errors are meaningful
Time is an attribute of the observer, not of the observed
A statement of a causal relation is not a theory. Theory does not require causality
Schemes of causality are narrative fictions driven by illusory personifications
Culture has dimensions in time and space
Cultures have tempi
If one can ask where, then one can also ask when. If one can ask when, one can ask where
