This paper considers epistemological implications of the concept of performativity in Judith Butler's philosophy. With their semiological shifting from the notions of truth value and descriptive nature of meaning, various interpretations of the category of performative form a line of abandoning the occidental tradition of epistemological distinction between subject and object. The line starts with J. L. Austin, and this paper traces it through the theories of Émile Benveniste, Jacques Derrida and works of Oswald Ducrot. Judith Butler’s concept of performativity is viewed as a possible concluding outcome of this course of semiology of knowledge, resulting in final transcending of the category of subject.
