Re: <nettime> Technological Construction of Society


Mark, Brian, et les autres,

Errrr... well, when I was with the PCF, the French Communist Party (NOT!
;-) they had a fine concept (or was it a notion?) that cut thru all these
damned complexities. It was called a 'structure a dominance', meaning
there were many different causes, yet one, or a discernable bundle of 'm,
was assigned superior explanatory power. Oeuf corse, all depended on the
current party line, but hey, presto, one didn't have to go thru all that
mess...

Happy Easter from Basel, patrizio & Diiiinooos!
