Please repeat that!

I found this absolutely amazing scentence today!

"The move from a structuralist account in which capital is understood to structure social relations in relatively homologous ways to a view of hegemony in which power relations are subject to repetition, convergence, and rearticulation brought the question of temporality into the thinking of structure, and marked a shift from a form of Althusserian theory that takes structural totalities as theoretical objects to one in which the insights into the contingent possibility of structure inaugurate a renewed conception of hegemony as bound up with the contingent sites and strategies of the rearticulation of power."
Dr Judith Butler

I'm looking forward to become that good in English.

I found the quote while watching this TED talk:
Steven Pinker: Chalking it up to the blank slate
