Modernist, production-orientated identity is displaced by a postmodern consumption-orientated identity. The aesthetic, hitherto the preserve of high culture and the elite associated with that culture, now pervades everyday life and, equally, everyday life now invades high culture. The different cultural spheres lose their autonomy, as ‘the aesthetic realm begins to colonise both theoretical and moral-political spheres’ (Lash 1990:11).

It would have required this text to be unreflexive about producing a text which is intended to encourage critical and self-critical reflexivity. For part of the power of academic discourses – of which this is an example – lies in their construction as ‘neutral’, a universal and privileged position from which ‘truth’ is established, when they are as partial and as inscribed with power as other discourses. This is particularly significant for a text on education and training, for, as Ball (1990c: 3) suggests, ‘educational sites are subject to discourse but are also centrally involved in the propagation and selective dissemination of discourses, the ‘‘social appropriation” of discourses.
