Morse Peckham

Who else reads him?

 Man’s Rage for Chaos: Behavior and Art (1965)

“An ideology is always out of phase with the situation in which it is employed, for an ideology has always
emerged as a response to a preceding situation, the attributes of which are different from the current situation.”   

Art and Pornography (1971)

He's saying that a society needs trivial areas for policing--like pornography--to establish its power over the rest of the structure.
