This chapter examines the thought of Judith Butler. It argues that Butler is Nietzsche in drag. Not the bitter Nietzsche with the bad conscience that he promptly circuited into the essays comprising On the Genealogy of Morals but that other spectral, imaginary Nietzsche, his double, who, until now, lurking in the shadows at the side of the stage of philosophy, finally makes his dancing entrance in the theater of Judith Butler in the drag outfit of the “transvaluation of values.” Several of Butler’s texts are analyzed, including Giving an Account of Oneself, After Antigone, and The Psychic Life of Power.

Keywords:   Judith Butler, Friedrich Nietzsche, philosophy, Giving an Account of Oneself, After Antigone, The Psychic Life of Power
