What`s the Matter?
Mål og innhald
"A performative understanding of discursive practices challenges the representationalist belief in the power of words to represent
preexisting things. Performativity, properly construed, is not an invitation to turn everything (including material bodies) into words; on the
contrary, performativity is precisely a contestation of the excessive power granted to language to determine what is real. Hence, in ironic
contrast to the misconception that would equate performativity with a form of linguistic monism that takes language to be the stuff of
reality, performativity is actually a contestation of the unexamined habits of mind that grant language and other forms of representation
more power in determining our ontologies than they deserve."
