Summary
  • Linguist, psychoanalyst, and cultural theorist, Julia Kristeva is one of the most influential and prolific thinkers of our time. Acclaimed for her contributions over the past three decades in many areas of the humanities, her works have broken new ground in the study of the self, the mind, and the ways in which we communicate through language. The Portable Kristeva is the first up-to-date, fully representative selection of Kristeva's most important writings of the last two decades
  • Here are Kristeva's insights on depression and melancholy from Black Sun, on the highly influential study of abjection from Powers of Horror, and on the nation and territorial space at a time when foreigners can no longer be understood as an aberration, and the impact that has on both our national and our psychic identities in Strangers to Ourselves. Excerpts from New Maladies of the Soul consider psychoanalysis and its tropes in light of the dramatic overhaul of familial and sexual mores at the end of the millennium. Passages from the recent Time and Sense show that book to be much more than an illuminating meditation on Proust's work; it is also a commentary on how the experience of literature is manifested in time and sensation, feeling and language
  • The essays not only reflect Kristeva's most salient contributions to philosophy, literary and cultural theory, linguistics, psychoanalytic theory, and feminist theory but also testify to her erudition and prominence in those fields. Enriched by a lucid introduction that provides an overview of Kristeva's contributions to the intellectual life of our time, The Portable Kristeva will serve as an essential tool for those familiar with her oeuvre, and will provide a succinct and complete introduction for those new to her writings
