Examined Life – Judith Butler & Sunaura Taylor 720p.avi

Judith Butler and Sunaura Taylor went for a walk and engaged in a terrific conversation about disability as not merely some physical status but largely a social status, and that is also true for so called “able-bodied” persons.

    That must be so nice, to go for a walk every day. If only the government would pay me to do nothing too.

    maybe, if you take the meaning of her words and extrapolate them beyond the issue of disability. I think in this case she was very specifically referring to disability. Secondly, she only said that “your disability brings up the issues of individualism within society” not that she took a particular stance on the issue.

    I love this stuff.  Although I don’t particularly appreciate how complicated the language can become.

    I would totally watch ‘Shopping with Judith Butler’. I love her jacket so much.
    Great video, really eye opening.

    i agree almost completely up until that last conclusion. individualism i think is crucial to that richness of difference that people like butler revindicate. the idea of everyone helping everyone as some sort of imperative above and beyond anything else is potentially destructive.

    Individualism is the most important aspect of society. When individual rights are lost, so is society.

    they don’t have kids or will ever have kids, why should we believe they care about the future?

    video put me right to sleep

    I really enjoyed this interview, and I love the works of Judith Butler, but I can’t help but feel she spends the whole interview restating what Sunaura says.

    That having been said, though, there’s definitely something to be said for the fact that Butler is eager to listen to and try to conceptualise the lived and expressed experiences of Sunaura, as a disabled person, within a philosophical context, rather than just pontificating to her about what her own experiences should mean.

    It seems as if these films are less about art and more interested in conveying ideas through a form of media.
