Abstract: In this book, Butler examines the 'trouble' with unproblematized appeals to sex/gender identities. She argues that the foundational categories of feminist and gender discourse are actually effects of unexamined relations of power. In their place she calls for a politics in which identity concepts are destabilized, proliferated, and radically reformulated. She challenges a variety of psychological assumptions about what it means to be a person or a gender, and offers rereadings of Levi-Strauss, Lacan, Freud, Gail Rubin, and Kristeva, and through a consideration of Wittig's work she provides a feminist supplement to Foucault.
