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. -- Judith Butler, femínistaheimspekingur

I don't see why. It's a perfectly cromulent paragraph.

In that case, sir, allow me to offer my most sincere contrafibularities. I shall return interfrastically.

Þetta er frábært comment:

Dutton remarked that “it’s possibly the anxiety-inducing obscurity of such writing that has led Professor Warren Hedges of Southern Oregon University to praise Judith Butler as ‘probably one of the ten smartest people on the planet’.”

Þetta er rosalegt.

Samt getur svona kukl verið mjög ljóðrænt og flott. Til dæmis byrjar ein bók, sem ég reyndi nýlega að lesa, á orðunum:

"This book is meant to unfold as a moment in time."

Það hljómar eins og eitthvað sem zen-lærlingar eiga að stefna að.

Þetta er reyndar ekki um heimspekibók...
