Synagogue, Philosophy, and Judith Butler

In the following video, philosopher Judith Butler discusses her work and philosophy with Wesleyan University President Michael S. Roth. I particularly enjoyed hearing her discuss how the synagogue of her youth played a major role in her path toward philosophy.

As a Rawlsian and Kantian, my work and thought has been very different from that of Butler. However, I am using Butler in one of my current projects that looks at polygamy and reality television.

I second her recommendation of Plato’s Dialogues.
