  2. Veronica Vasterling (2010). The Psyche and the Social: Judith Butler's Politcizing of Psychoanalytical Theory. In Jens de Vleminck (ed.), Sexuality and psychoanalysis: Philosophical Criticisms. Leuven University Press. 10--171.
    Drawing on The Psychic Life of Power (Butler 1997), this essay sketches the outline of Butler's project of bringing Foucault (politics) and Lacan (psychoanalysis) together. In addressing the psychic life of power, Butler tries to unravel the dynamic interplay of the psychic and the social with the subject as the intersection of both.

  3. Veronica Vasterling (2008). Martha Nussbaum's Capabilities Approach. Proceedings of the Xxii World Congress of Philosophy 50:823-835.
    Throughout the 1990-ies Nussbaum, in collaboration with others, has elaborated and argued for a list of human capabilities which specifies necessary conditions of human flourishing. The capabilities approach has been enormously influential in putting issues of global development and justice, and especially justice for women, on the philosophical and political agenda. Moreover, many international agencies and institutions, including the United Nations Development Program, have started to make use of this approach. Despite of its obvious good intentions the approach deserves more (...)

  4. Veronica Vasterling (2007). Cognitive Theory and Phenomenology in Arendt's and Nussbaum's Work on Narrative. Human Studies 30 (2):79 - 95.
    In this essay I compare Nussbaum’s and Arendt’s approach to narrativity. The point of the comparison is to find out which approach is more adequate for practical philosophy: the approach influenced by cognitive theory (Nussbaum) or the one influenced by hermeneutic phenomenology (Arendt). I conclude that Nussbaum’s approach is flawed by methodological solipsism, which is due to her application of cognitive theory.

  7. Veronica Vasterling (ed.) (2006). Practising Interdisciplinarity in Gender Studies. Raw Nerve Books.
    Collaborative work by six writers whose interest in interdisciplinarity reflects deep concern with theory and praxis, motivated by both the ubiquity and vagueness of the concept itself and the scarcity of practices that enact it. They work in the Netherlands, Romania, England, Sweden, Finland and Greece.

  8. Veronica Vasterling (2003). Body and Language: Butler, Merleau-Ponty and Lyotard on the Speaking Embodied Subject. International Journal of Philosophical Studies 11 (2):205 – 223.
    In this article three viewpoints on the relation of body and language are discussed: the poststructuralist viewpoint of Judith Butler, the phenomenological viewpoint of Maurice Merleau-Ponty and the postmodernist viewpoint of Jean-François Lyotard. The reason juxtaposing for these three accounts is twofold. First, the topic requires a combination of post-structuralist and phenomenological insights, and second, the accounts are supplementary. Butler's account raises questions that can be answered with the help of Merleau-Ponty's work. Lyotard's anthropology of the inhuman offers a perspective (...)

    : This paper aims to investigate whether and in what respects the conceptions of the body and of agency that Judith Butler develops in Bodies That Matter are useful contributions to feminist theory. The discussion focuses on the clarification and critical assessment of the arguments Butler presents to refute the charges of linguistic monism and determinism.

    'Deconstruction' as a way of philosophizing fits in with an important aspect of the tradition of modern philosophy, i.e. the reflection on philosophical thinking itself, on the rules and conditions of its thinking, yet it differs from this tradition in that it starts from the non-traditional conception of philosophy as being — primarily and factually — an activity of text-reading and - production. As such, the 'method' of deconstruction follows a double path : on the one hand, the analysis or (...)
