Susan Sontag wrote Notes on Camp to rail against the elitist high art sensibilities that excluded the mass, common & campy arts, but then came to regret it once, as a result in part bc of her, the tide turned the other way to exclude all high art as a valid mode study.
Bruno Latour, Harry Collins & Michael Lynch each wrote highly critical deconstructionist accounts of the textbook vision of science, falsification, etc. only to later, once the tide had turned to a total kind of skeptic idealism, become stalwart defenders of scientific enterprise
In each case, these authors were mobilizing a critique of the flaws, ideologies, elitism, and self-delusions of different disciplinary practices under the premise that they would continue operating in history unobstructed
It reminds me of people who advocated for socialism with a human face only to despair when later, once communism had collapse, that in their attempt to criticize communism to save it, may have contributed to what led to its total collapse.
