Extrait de la couverture : "Dans cet ouvrage majeur publié en 1990 aux [USA], la philosophe Judith Butler invite à penser le trouble qui perturbe le genre pour définir une politique féministe sans le fondement d'une identité stable. Ce livre désormais classique pour les recherches sur le genre, aussi bien que les études gaies et lesbiennes, est au principe de la théorie et de la politique queer : non pas solidifier la communautl d'une contre-culture, mais bousculer l'hétérosexualité obligatoire en la dénaturalisant. Il ne s'agit pas d'inversion, mais de subversion. Judith Butler localise les failles qui manifestent à la marge le dérèglement plus général de ce régime de pouvoir. En même temps, elle soumet à la question les injonctions normatives qui constituent les sujets sexuels. Jamais nous ne parvenons à nous conformer tout à fait aux normes : entre genre et sexualité, il y a toujours du jeu. Le pouvoir ne se contente pas de réprimer ; il ouvre en retour, dans ce jeu performatif, la possibilité d'inventer de nouvelles formes du sujet."

Work Description

One of the most talked-about scholarly works of the past fifty years, Judith Butler’s Gender Trouble is as celebrated as it is controversial.

Arguing that traditional feminism is wrong to look to a natural, 'essential' notion of the female, or indeed of sex or gender, Butler starts by questioning the category 'woman' and continues in this vein with examinations of 'the masculine' and 'the feminine'. Best known however, but also most often misinterpreted, is Butler's concept of gender as a reiterated social performance rather than the expression of a prior reality.

Thrilling and provocative, few other academic works have roused passions to the same extent.

Excerpts

For the most part, feminist theory has assumed that there is some existing identity, understood through the category of women, who not only initiates feminist interests and goals within discourse, but constitutes the subject for whom political representation is pursued.
