“The very notion of giving meaning to something is premised on a cosmology in which form is to content as spirit to matter, men to women, God to nature.  Substance suggests that meaning is inherent in the world rather than something that needs to be inscribed upon it, and it proposes meanings that can be read in the world itself – the world as language.”  Rebecca Solnit
