In Precarious Life, Judith Butler discusses recognizing the Other in order to sustain the Self and the problems of not being able to identify the Other. Butler notes that identification always relies upon a difference that it seeks to overcome, and that its aim is accomplished only by reintroducing the difference it claims to have vanquished. The one with whom I identify is not me, and that 'not being me' is the condition of the identification. Otherwise, as Jacqueline Rose reminds us, 'identification collapses into identity, which spells the death of identification itself'. However, Butler's understanding of Self and Other is Eurocentric itself because she writes that one cannot recognize Self unless it is through the Other. Therefore, Self and Other are limited through a language of binary codes.

What don’t we learn about the Self and the Other?
  1. That it is often difficult to identify the Other.
  2. The Eurocentric understanding of the “Other” is that a person needs to know the Other to identify the self.
  3. One must know what the Other is, in order to sustain the Self..
  4. Identifying the Other relies greatly upon the similarity between identification and identity.
