Book Description

April 15, 2002 0231126298 978-0231126298 2nd

As a linguist, Julia Kristeva has pioneered a revolutionary theory of the sign in its relation to social and political emancipation; as a practicing psychoanalyst, she has produced work on the nature of the human subject and sexuality, and on the "new maladies" of today's neurotic. The Portable Kristeva is the only fully comprehensive compilation of Kristeva's key writings. The second edition includes added material from Kristeva's most important works of the past five years, including The Sense and Non-Sense of Revolt, Intimate Revolt, and Hannah Arendt. Editor Kelly Oliver has also added new material to the introduction, summarizing Kristeva's latest intellectual endeavors and updating the bibliography.

Editorial Reviews

Review

It has been apparent for some time that Julia Kristeva has inherited the intellectual throne left vacant by the death of Simone de Beauvoir.

(Elaine Showalter)

[Kristeva's] work is entirely new, accurate, not through scientific puritanism but because it takes up all the space it deals with, fills it precisely, making it necessary for anyone who counts himself out to reveal himself as an opponent or a censor.

(Roland Barthes)
