The need to relate to the primary terms/concepts and some of their consequential links and roles is satisfied here, central for the whole idea/ideology of the upcoming presentation.

Further substance, both to the concepts involved and to that which is described and analysed, is provided. Periphery and margin are about distance and relations, geography and function.
