If we combine the perspectives of foucauldian discourse analysis, interstitial sociology, fourth-dimensionalism, and marxist theory, then it’s possible to create a simple model of the modern world; one which explains the underlying structure of our society.
The basic premise of this model is that the world is actually a work of art, that it’s a piece of fiction, that it’s a narrative. This is what fourth-dimensionalism tells us, and this is what interstitial sociology tells us.
If the world is a piece of fiction, then it’s a narrative with a plot. And if it has a plot, then it has characters. And if it has characters, then they have names.
