Example text

There is no art, only signifying practices. Or rather, who's to say what's just a signifying practice and what a work of art? Once the fixed points of difference are undermined, there can be no rule to make such distinctions. But it doesn't follow from this that distinctions cannot be made in particular contexts. Of course if poetry is above the fray of competing social discourses then its special status is secure. But there is no Poetry, only poetries. The patchwork quilt of works I have in mind insists on its reflectiveness as a means of refracting the pull of commodification or, to put it more historically, zeitgeistization.

For the selfhating intellectual, the hidden language of reason is nihilism. 38 WHAT'S ART GOT TO DOW I T HIT? The vehemence of the attacks on cultural and new historical studies has left too little room for a critique of the ways in which these approaches continue to perpetuate a deterministic or professional rather than rhetorical or poetic approach to its subjects. This left-libertarian or aesthetic critique of cultural studies becomes almost impossible to hear amidst the mischaracterizations of the goals of cultural studies that seem mischievously aimed at preventing any thoughtful discussion of the issues.

My own misgivings about Fish's position take an entirely different direction since I find his professionalization of discourse undermines the possibility of any trenchant critique of canonical values or indeed of the institutionalized rationality that Fish enacts. Fish's system suffers from being a self-enclosed artifact, unable to confront its own, inevitable positionality. It represents the professionalization of professionalization and precludes the aestheticizing of its own values, insofar as such aestheticizing might ground judgments outside the context of a profeSSion, holding one's judgments to a continual testing of and in the world.
