Contents of this Doctoral Dissertation include: Section I, the Brimming Cup: critiquing the presentational, the disruption of brimming, subverting presentational truth-speaking, the ambiguous kindred-spirit of refinement, the archipresentational, nonpresentational back-water, life-taking-notice-of-life, cactus flower, arche without representation, the integrity of dead matter; Section II, Her Son's Wife: archipresentational domesticity, the violent flame of life, the hypopresentational, the exodus of life; Section III, Rough-Hewn: the paradoxical life, the vacuousness of "something else", a shade for life, the vitalistic game of nature.
