Abstract

Without delving systematically into questions relating to language, meaning, naming, “thingness,” etc.—and perforce into the work of luminaries such as Heidegger, Kripke, Searle, Bill Brown, and the like—we are nonetheless obligated to spend a bit of time “unpacking” the twelve words in the title of this essay. Let’s start with the subtitle, a task that is somewhat easier. First, I employ “southern” to denote the southern part of the United States rather than the so-called Global South, aka the areas formerly included under the now anachronistic “Third World” umbrella. Okay, but precisely what areas do I include in the “southern part of the United States?” Or, with a nod to Raymond Carver, what are we talking about when we talk about “the South?”
