May add more to this later but, thanks to Robert Peake, a search led me to an essay I want to provide a link to: "Performatism, or the End of Postmodernism" by Raoul Eshelman. In order to make it easier for you to understand Eshelman's positions, I suggest scrolling down to "I can make out five basic features of performatism" and reading from there to the end of his essay first. > See my bloglist for a link to Robert Peake's site.
