    • Philosophy

On The Force of Nonviolence: An Ethico-Political Bind (2020).
What is it to be nonviolent in political activity? Most ethics allow for self-defense, but Judith has a problem with defining "self" as well as "violence," and offers a full critique of the individualism that underlies typical Western approaches to both ethics and politics.
Mark, Seth, and Wes interview Judith about these issues and the connection to Gender Trouble.
End song: "Dancing with Death," discussed on Nakedly Examined Music #111 with Marty Willson-Piper.
