Judith Butler: Ethics, Law, Politics

Judith Butler: Ethics, Law, Politics (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


It is undisputed that Judith Butler is the philosopher who invited us to think and imagine the subject as the effect of gender processes and practices. Over the last twenty years, critical legal scholarship engaged either overtly or covertly with the question of the legal subject. And in this book, Elena Loizidou takes up Judith Butler's work as a reading of how the legal subject is formed. The most dominant notion of the legal subject within critical legal studies is one that is primarily pre-political, a-historical and spirit. As Loizidou argues, however, Butler returns this notion of the legal subject to its materiality and its embodiment, challenging legal scholarship to re-think its understanding of the subject and of its effects.
