The transcendental material requirements for the existence of the Collegè de France

“[post modernism] a state of mind deemed possible in the west, is a luxury dependent on the state of the rest.  The post-modern experience is not on globally for those seeking bread not circuses and seeking freedom of expression and not expressive freedom.  There are transcendental material requirements for the existence of the Collegè de France and for the privileged practice of ‘playing with the pieces’.

From Archer (2013) Critical Realism in the Social Sciences in Archer et al (2013) Critical Realism, Essential Readings.

Wish I’d read this years ago when struggling with AA820 on the OU.
