The Philosophy of Julia Kristeva (Book)
Title: The Philosophy of Julia Kristeva
Editor: Sara Beardsworth
Abstract: The Philosophy of Julia Kristeva is volume 36 in The Library of Living Philosophers. The volume covers the extraordinary breadth of one of the seminal thinkers of her generation, from linguistics and literature to psychoanalysis, religion, public health, maternity, ethics, and politics. Kristeva has extended semiotics through the notions of intertextuality, dialogism, and semanalysis. Her readings of Plato, Hegel, Heidegger, Sartre, and Arendt, among others, enrich the encounters in psychoanalysis and literature across a broad front. Her search for a new humanist vision both keeps a stake in Enlightenment thinkers and redraws the philosophical and psychoanalytic paths of what has come to be known as "negativity," opening up investigations that resonate with the crises humanity is facing in our times. This volume represents and extends the full range of the life's work, containing thirty-six interpretive and critical essays by leading thinkers of today and experts on Kristeva's work, together with Kristeva's replies to the essays, her autobiographical reflections in interviews with Samuel Dock, and a full Kristeva bibliography.
