|Realism and a General Economy of the Link
Currents in Electronic Literacy Spring 2001 (4), <http://www.cwrl.utexas.edu/
Disavowal, closure, a restricted economy. It matters little what the currency of this economy is but that what is concealed within and by the work has the capacity to undo, and so threaten, the very thing that constitutes it. That is, this alterity is internal to any work; it is not an 'outside' that comes to inhabit or haunt a work by virtue of a hermeneutics of violence. It is not the arbitrary imposition of a theoretical template willynilly onto any particular object.
This is an economy of disavowal which appropriates the hypertext link as its currency.
