Judith Butler and Fina Birulés: Shared Life

Saturday April 30, 2022, from 18h30 to 20h
Montealegre, 5, 08001 Barcelona

Judith Butler and Fina Birulés with Matías Sirczuk (Seminari Filosofia i Gènere-ADHUC, Universitat de Barcelona) as moderator, talk about the genealogy of their thought and the shared readings that have influenced their work.


From Wittig or Merleau-Ponty to Lévinas or Arendt, Judith Butler’s work draws on a philosophical legacy that the thinker has reinterpreted and questioned from the present to weave new frameworks for understanding life. Following the publication of the book Judith Butler (Katz editores / Eudeba, 2022), we will delve into the readings that have influenced her work and that she shares with the philosopher Fina Birulés and we will trace some of the conceptual threads that characterize their thought: interdependence, vulnerability or the ethics of non-violence, among others.
