Abstract

The transition from material objects to the matter of objects, from the adjective to the noun, hence the passage that aims to place matter as such at the middle of a rigorous discourse, although it constitutes, and in fact has constituted, an irresistible temptation, is not, in actual fact, so easy, so obvious, but implies a path fraught with difficulty, in some respects aporetic – a pathway that is delineated at the confine between the perceptible and the imperceptible, between the determined and the undetermined, between the obvious and the obscure, between the real and the imaginary. Hence we are talking about homeless discourse, because it is relegated to those extremes zones of being in which the maximally concrete, heavy and solid, end up being confused with the evanescent, the ineffable and the abstract.
