Subject: literality

It seems to me that there is, on these lists, a tendency towards a certain
narrow-minded literality -- on the Deleuze list one must talk "schizo",
on baudrillard one must disappear. But if it is true -- as I think it is,
and you'll correct me if not -- that these people regard their thinking
as a box of tools from which one chooses what suits one and discards
the rest, then they do assume some kind of a choosing "I",  
some kind of purpose for which this "I" does the choosing, and the
possibility of talking about these tools from a perspective in which 
one might or might not choose them.  Or maybe this toolbox view is not 
true of B?   If not, then what _is_?
