from Giving an Account of Oneself

“The value of thought is measured by its distance from the continuity of the familiar.” (Adorno, Minima Moralia, qtd. in Butler 3)

“[E]thical deliberation is bound up with the operation of critique. An critique finds that it cannot go forward without a consideration of how the deliberating subject comes into being and how a deliberating subject might actually live or appropriate a set of norms.” (Butler 8 )
