I think Robbe-Grillet is describing his own novels, not talking in a vacuum, or laying down an abstract stance, and certainly not a judgement on the past. Nobody can actually proceed on such an abstract basis, but one can talk about the method, as if it were a method, AFTER it is accomplished. Robbe-Grillet is always grinning behind the curtain; like that last scene in his movie Trans-Europe Express, when they get off the train and when it become clear the whole adventure was made up.
