recurrence, system, origin
Structuralism in action?
People found themselves bearing witness to the same stories. They did not fail to take this recurrence into account. But once we speak of 'recurrence,' we are speaking of 'system'; and once we speak of 'system,' we are speaking of 'origin.' We indeed must find and identify the origin. And certainly here, the origin is slavery.
