Yes, it does not need to be explained in any way. It means the same thing as, for example, “in the context of a conversation” (“be in the topic”, or the opposite – “dude, you're out of the topic”). Simply, the postmodernists declared at one time that there are no “second plans” (i.e., “contexts”), but only the first (“surface”, and nothing under it), so they coined this word – “discourse”. And then it became fashionable – some people think that if you use it, you can pass for smart. Anyway, “off-top “means” not in the discourse”.
