Summary
  • Lloyd explores Butler's core ideas and philosophical engagement, tracing the development of her thought from her first book to her most recent works
  • "With the publication of her highly acclaimed and much-cited book Gender Trouble, Judith Butler became one of the most influential feminist theorists of her generation. Her theory of gender performativity and her writings on corporeality, on the injurious capacity of language, on the vulnerability of human life to violence, and on the impact of mourning on politics have, taken together, comprised a substantial and highly original body of work." "In this book, Moya Lloyd provides both a clear exposition and an original critique of Butler's work. She examines Butler's core ideas, traces the development of her thought from her first book to her most recent work, and assesses Butler's engagements with the philosophies of Hegel, Foucault, Derrida, Irigaray and Beauvoir, as well as addressing the nature and impact of Butler's writing within feminist theory. Throughout Lloyd is particularly concerned to examine Butler's political theory, including her critical interventions in such contemporary political controversies as those surrounding gay marriage, hate-speech, human rights, and September 11 and its aftermath."--BOOK JACKET
