Description

One of the most talked-about scholarly works of the past 50 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.

Been wanting for a long time to read Gender Trouble

...but I’m much better at listening than reading. I’ve been hoping Gender Trouble would come out in audio for about 7 years, after trying several times to struggle through print. Lots of people say the language is difficult. And sure: it’s a book a lot about philosophy. I’ve had to listen through several times, but I find the narration makes it pretty easy. And I feel grateful to finally have the chance to encounter Butler’s words and powerful perspectives. The one suggestion I would make to audible: please cut it into smaller chunks. The audio is cut into 9 sections, the first 4 mapping to the two prefaces and starts of the first two chapters, and the final 5 mapping to some place in the middle of chapter 2, the starts of chapter 3, ch 3 section 3, ch 3 section 4, and the conclusion. I found it helpful to listen to each section multiple times before moving on, but difficult to do so, given audible’s large audio chunks. It might benefit listeners to cut along each section of a chapter, instead of doing so only at the end. Please keep ‘em coming, Tantor!

Essential theory

I am delighted by how many excellent theoretical works Audible has produced this year. It lets me read a little outside my field, painlessly.

Word salad

I’m pretty pleased with myself for getting through this. It’s incredible that some people hold this up as an example of serious academic work.

Difficult and Confusing read but interesting

I am not a gender studies mayor and thus didn't know many of the works she was responding to and this along with here academic language made the book very difficult for me to understand. a lot of interesting ideas but I felt like I lacked a complete understanding of the text. but I really like her response to foucault and love loved the idea of gender as performance. I am not homosexual nor female but I'd imagine this book would mean more for those folks

Wonderfully Logical

Butler is thorough in her exploration of gender and this book has the essence of why gender is so complex. Takes only about 10 or 20 listens to put it all together. Admittedly, she could simplify the idea but I think that would take away from the central reality that the grammar of gender is NOT at all simple and the language Butler uses to get this across to readers drives the point. Loved the book and feel it should be a required text for every college student of our age. Hopefully, in the future, high school students will be able to tackle it with ease. (Perhaps I'm too hopeful.)

Identity opportunism is trash

The least scientific explanation of gender ever. This woman is an opportunist and an anti-communist. She wrote an entire book filled with her own speculation and subjectivist viewpoint. Don’t listen to or read this crap. Go listen to “society and social change” by marx

Conclusion: From politics to a parody of thinking

I only read this book because I believe that he who knows only his own side knows little of that as well. So I didn't approach this work with the highest of expectations. Yet the vacuity of Butler's thought did surprise me. She basically just discusses what others have said about identity, sex, gender etc. and uses household names likes Lacan, Foucault, Adorno, Freud, Derrida, Kristeva, Beauvoir. Some of them she takes issues with, others she seem to align her with or she takes them as voices of authority. The entire discussion and her baroque panoply of concepts like the Law, , fallocentric, logocentric, incest prohibition, ontology etc. makes one think of scholastics who would discuss the trinity, the theodicy problem and many other unreal and non-existent entities and problems. In the end I'm not convinced by this line of thinking, it's a quirkmire of bad, faulty, nebulous concepts that hinders one to see or understand what sex or gender might be. I predict that in the future this line of thinking will be understood as an expression of academics with divergent, different or homosexual desires at the end of the 20. century who were in opposition to a bigoted culture, but I doubt that the conceptual framework will survive, For that it's too concocted, extravagant, unintelligible and unscientific. Yet in institutional frames it will probably be around for one or two generations more.
