Beyond Butlerophilia or Butlerophobia, the essays gathered in this volume offer an in-depth reading of Judith Butler's work and it is from this careful analysis of her proposal that the book as a whole examines the political implications of the performative turn Butler poses. In this key, performativity is understood as part of a project that goes through all his work, and involves reflection on subjective formations and bodily life in dialogue with power. As Judith Butler points out in the interview conducted by the publishers for this volume, “I am interested in showing that even as vulnerable, precarious creatures, we are also capable of agency and action, and this is the reason why performativity can and should arise in the midst of precariousness. Located in the interstices, each of the essays as well as the interview that make up the book play at the very limit of the disciplines, demonstrating that Butler's work does not belong only to philosophy, to queer or to the renewal of feminism, but which invites all theoretical reflection on life forms to become a critical task.
