So institutions, cultural fields and discourses are simultaneously battlefields and instruments of such power struggle. As we shall see the yoga discourse evolved out of a conflict between various groups caught up by dramatic changes in their institutional environment.
I hope that this theory outline has given substance to a social genealogical evolutionary model of non-linear random variation, dynamic adaptation and conflict that provides a good basis for the explanation of changes in the yoga discourse and its cultural field.414 We can see how signs and discourses grow dynamically out of, react to and take part in further social change. This change in culture is then accelerated by status competition among specialists with further cultural and social consequences. I find it significantly superior to the traditional History of Doctrine approach. New cultural ideas and signs need not be explained as either one-good-old-idea-leads-to-the-next-new-one.
