Book: The Force of NonViolence: An ethico-political bind by Judith Butler, 2020
All are welcome to attend the January proDA Book Club meeting on February 22, 2021, 12-1:30pm Washington DC (ET) time. Join us!
As one of the world’s leading feminist philosophers, Butler in The Force of NonViolence: An ethico-political bind shows how an ethic of nonviolence must be connected to a broader political struggle for social equality. Furthermore, she argues that nonviolence is often misunderstood as a passive practice that emanates from a calm region of the soul, or as an individualist ethical relation to existing forms of power. But, in fact, nonviolence is an ethical position found in the midst of the political field – a new twist on a progressive understanding of non-violence!
