A palimpsest which conflates bla bla bla

"Against the idea of sequential narrative of succeeding image cultures, and against the narrative logic of successive epistemological breaks, Phillips argues that 'vision operates instead as a palimpsest which conflates many different modes of perception - a model which applies both to the history of vision and to the perception of a singular observer'. This seems to me a very productive metaphor (and one that can help us to resist both technological progressivism and epistemological evolutionism)."

Va? Cornflakes? Jag ooorkar inte mer. Får man byta teoriböckerna mot "Mannen som dog som en lax" av Mikael Niemi?
