Julia Kristeva: Psychoanalysis and Modernity

Paperback

Price: $33.95

Overview

Honorable Mention, 2006 Goethe Award for Psychoanalytic Scholarship presented by the Section on Psychoanalysis of the Canadian Psychological Association

This is the first systematic overview of Julia Kristeva’s vision and work in relation to philosophical modernity. It provides a clear, comprehensive, and interdisciplinary analysis of her thought on psychoanalysis, art, ethics, politics, and feminism in the secular aftermath of religion. Sara Beardsworth shows that Kristeva’s multiple perspectives explore the powers and limits of different discourses as responses to the historical failures of Western cultures, failures that are undergone and disclosed in psychoanalysis.

Reviews
"This is the best available study of Kristeva's thought. Beardsworth clearly and cleanly exposes the inner workings of the system of critical thought of this towering intellectual figures. This will become the primary text for understanding–one might even say for constructing–Kristeva's relationship to most of the diverse streams of contemporary feminism."
