Abstract

This essay retrieves a latent and opaque view of space in tropes and uses a triangle of three key terms, namely chora, figural situation, and the content of the form as a theoretical framework. The discussion emphasizes three related parts: (1) how space denotes a bodily precursor to figurative expression, (2) how a trope space connotes space and expresses it as a figural situation, and (3) how the content of this space and situation may be deciphered in terms of ethics and values. It offers an extended example using Rosa Parks.
