A concept exists by the discourse...

I would like to know wether the occurrence of "by" in the following sentence is correct:

"A concept exists by the discourse that takes it as an object of thought."

The sentence means that it is the discourse as such what gives existence to a concept. My doubt is: does the "by" pass that idea to the reader?

Thank you very much.
