So far, so good. Looks like a pretty solid skewering of post-modernism and post-structuralism. The crux seems to be that metaphysics is inescapable because even attempts to escape it require reference to it... thus invalidating the Heraclitean approach of everyone who followed in Nietzsche's footsteps.
