On the one hand, those that gravitate towards the interpretation of ideology as objective knowledge (realists) have contested the relativism of historically determined foundations of ideology, while, on the other hand, anti-realists have chided the ahistorical model of transcendentalism which roots the realist's presupposition of an objective reality.
What is still highly debatable -- currently in both cinema studies and in critical studies, generally speaking -- is whether the obsolescence of ideology, with its related concepts of "truthful knowledge" and "social subjectivity," implies the abandonment of both the concept of universal knowledge and theories of general politics.

Without verisimilitude who is going to believe anything?
