Judith Butler’s Religious Roots (Video)

Judith Butler’s Religious Roots (Video) June 5, 2013

In the following video, philosopher Judith Butler discusses her work and philosophy with Wesleyan University President Michael S. Roth. I particularly enjoyed hearing her discuss how the synagogue of her youth played a major role in her path toward philosophy.

As a Rawlsian and Kantian, my work and thought is very different from that of Butler. However, her approach to gender continues to fascinate me and I admire her activism.

Also, I second her recommendation of Plato’s Dialogues.
