“Grievable”

Judith Butler

“The question that preoccupies me in the light of recent global violence is, Who counts as human? Whose lives count as lives? What makes for a grievable life?Judith Butler, Precarious Life: The Powers of Mourning and Violence, p. 20.

This short book, which is one of Butler’s most readable, was written post 9/11, and published in 2004. Butler is a feminist, post-modern philosopher. I’ve been very influenced by her work.
