yes - or as Eisenhart taught me, make the strange common, and the common strange.  which is, now that i think of it, Foucault's approach. Foucault, moving in opposite direction of Kant, looked to see what contingencies were cultural constructions, rather than universal.

anyway - that's a vague recollection - and i've not the energy to search  up the actual statements.
