This book argues that literature can be defined-pragmatist and historicist arguments notwithstanding-and that in its definition its unique value can be discovered. The author identifies literature ontologically as a sign of the preconceptual, as the "ostensive moment" that discloses neither the purpose nor the structure of existence but existence itself, revealed in its nonhuman register.
