Alesha vs Arlene: a critical realist perspective

09.21.09 | 2 Comments

Today’s big news is the fall out between Alesha Dixon and Arlene Philips over the TV show Strictly Come Dancing.  

It’s important, I contend, to set out the emerging debate within an appropriate epistemoligical framework, and to take a considered view on the extent to which the debate is ontologically ‘real’, and to set this against the claim that it is a ‘social reality’ effectively manufactured by the hegemomic forces of capitalism eager to ‘alienate’ the working classes from an appreciation of their true objective interests.

 

Nah, not really.  Just kidding.
