Abstract Machado de Assis displayed an acute sensitivity to the liminal space that Silviano Santiago refers to as the "space-in-between" o entre-lugar , which shapes experience. This enhanced his ability to convey a nuanced relationship between various categories of difference — particularly subject and object — compared with that of the normative modern worldview. Located in the late nineteenth and the early twentieth centuries, Machado's perspective, which views categories of difference as inherently relative and interlocking extremes on a continuum, displays an affinity with postmodern sensibilities. According to Pitirim Sorokin, the previous ideational worldview during the medieval era privileged a metaphysical, spiritual, and subjectivist mentation associated with the rise of Christianity. The structure of the universe was considered to be divinely ordained and the religious authority of the church prevailed over natural knowledge. With the rise of the sensate paradigm, the capacities of intellect, reason, and an objectivist mentation as well as its cultural embodiments in science and technology were not only given new emphasis, but also became preeminent over other types of mentation and cultural expression. The resulting "mirror of nature" worldview, 7 often referred to as the "representation paradigm", 8 was premised on the belief in a true, preordained, objective reality, which was copied onto each individual's subjective consciousness. Knowledge and thus truth would be yielded solely by mirroring — mapping — this one true world in the form of mimesis, objectively represented in scientific models. Once grasped through scientific inquiry, the laws governing it world could also be manipulated for human gain. This thinking was bequeathed to the nineteenth and twentieth centuries most notably through the various branches of philosophical positivism and scientific rationalism. Indeed, Sorokin maintains that the violent seismic shift during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries was comparable in magnitude to the profound shift from the ideational-dominated worldview of the medieval era to the sensate-dominated worldview of the Renaissance and Reformation that gave rise to modernity. Deconstructive postmodernism is popularly considered most representative of postmodernism and often the most reviled.
