Hatred and forgiveness by Julia Kristeva( )

19 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Julia Kristeva refracts the impulse to hate (and our attempts to subvert, sublimate, and otherwise process it) through psychoanalysis and text, exploring worlds, women, religion, portraits, and the act of writing. Her inquiry spans themes, topics, and figures central to her writing, and her paths of discovery advance the theoretical innovations that are so characteristic of her thought
This incredible need to believe by Julia Kristeva( )

11 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 1,159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Unlike Freud, I do not claim that religion is just an illusion and a source of neurosis. The time has come to recognize, without being afraid of 'frightening' either the faithful or the agnostics, that the history of Christianity prepared the world for humanism." So writes Julia Kristeva in this provocative work, which skillfully upends our deeply entrenched ideas about religion, belief, and the thought and work of a renowned psychoanalyst and critic. Through a clever patchwork of dialogue, lectures, and excerpts of essays, Kristeva analyzes the inexorable push toward faith that, for Kristeva, lies at the heart of the psyche and the history of society. Examining the lives, theories, and convictions of Saint Teresa of Avila, Sigmund Freud, Donald Winnicott, Hannah Arendt, and other prominent individuals, Kristeva investigates the human desire for God and the shadowy zone in which belief resides. She suggests that human beings are formed by their need to believe, beginning with our first attempts at speech and following through to our adolescent search for identity and meaning. Kristeva then applies her insight to contemporary religious clashes and the plight of immigrant populations, especially those of Islamic origin. Even if we no longer have faith in God, Kristeva argues, we must believe in human destiny and creative possibility. Reclaiming Christianity's openness to self-questioning and the quest for knowledge, Kristeva urges a "new kind of politics," one that will restore the integrity of the human community."--Jacket

Powers of horror : an essay on abjection by Julia Kristeva( Book )

21 editions published between 1982 and 2017 in English and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Kristeva is one of the leading voices in contemporary French criticism, on a par with such names as Genette, Foucault, Greimas and others ... [Powers of Horror is] an excellent introduction to an aspect of contemporary French literature which has been allowed to become somewhat neglected in the current emphasis on para-philosophical modes of discourse. The sections on Céline, for example, are indispensable reading for those interested in this writer and place him within a context that is both illuminating and of general interest"--Paul de Man, p. [4] of cover
The sense and non-sense of revolt by Julia Kristeva( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 997 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Investigates the powers and limits of psychoanalysis, focusing on whether, in our contemporary "entertainment" culture, rebellion is still a viable option and whether it is still possible to build and embrace a counterculture. She illustrates the advances and impasses of rebel culture through the experiences of three 20th-century writers: John Paul Sartre, Louis Aragon, and Roland Barthes. Kristeva is a practicing psychoanalyst and professor of linguistics at the University of Paris. First published in 1996 as Sens et non-sens de la revolte, Artheme Fayard.Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
Teresa my love : an imagined life of the Saint of Avila : a novel by Julia Kristeva( )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mixing fiction, history, psychoanalysis, and personal fantasy, Teresa, My Love turns a past world into a modern marvel, following Sylvia Leclercq, a French psychoanalyst, academic, and incurable insomniac, as she falls for the sixteenth-century Saint Teresa of Avila and becomes consumed with charting her life. Traveling to Spain, Leclercq, Julia Kristeva's probing alter ego, visits the sites and embodiments of the famous mystic and awakens to her own desire for faith, connection, and rebellion. One of Kristeva's most passionate and transporting works, Teresa, My Love interchanges biography, autobiography, analysis, dramatic dialogue, musical scores, and images of paintings and sculpture to engage the reader in Leclercq's--and Kristeva's--journey. Born in 1515, Teresa of Avila outwitted the Spanish Inquisition and was a key reformer of the Carmelite Order. Her experience of ecstasy, which she intimately described in her writings, released her from her body and led to a complete realization of her consciousness, a state Kristeva explores in relation to present-day political failures, religious fundamentalism, and cultural malaise. Incorporating notes from her own psychoanalytic practice, as well as literary and philosophical references, Kristeva builds a fascinating dual diagnosis of contemporary society and the individual psyche while sharing unprecedented insights into her own character. -- From publisher's website
Language--the unknown : an initiation into linguistics by Julia Kristeva( Book )

29 editions published between 1900 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book is an introduction to linguistics which presents the reader with an incredible amount of information, ranging from Egyptian hieroglyphs to the communication of dolphins, from the anatomy of the vocal apparatus to the basic mechanisms of the unconscious in dreamwork. The bulk of the book is devoted to a review of the different systems used by various societies to think about their languages (primitive societies, the Egyptians, the Sumerians and the Akkadians, China, India, the Phoenicians, the Hebrews) and then continues with a description of linguistic theories in the West through the ages (Greece, Rome, Arab Grammar, Medieval theories, Renaissance theories, the seventeenth century and the grammar of Port Royal, the eighteenth century and the Encyclopédie, the nineteenth century, structural linguistics in the twentieth century). Throughout this survey Kristeva's main purpose is to show the different ways in which different societies, or different ages, thought of the relation between the concept, the sound, and the thing (Saussure's signified, signifier, and referent). -- from (Feb. 5, 2014)

The severed head : capital visions by Julia Kristeva( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Informed by a provocative exhibition at the Louvre curated by the author, The Severed Head unpacks artistic representations of severed heads from the Paleolithic period to the present. Surveying paintings, sculptures, and drawings, Julia Kristeva turns her famed critical eye to a study of the head as symbol and metaphor, as religious object and physical fact, further developing a critical theme in her work - the power of horro - and the potential for the face to provide an experience of the sacred
Nations without nationalism by Julia Kristeva( Book )

20 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 771 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Underlying Julia Kristeva's latest work is the idea that otherness - whether it be ethnic, religious, social, or political - needs to be understood and accepted in order to guarantee social harmony. Nations Without Nationalism is an impassioned plea for tolerance and for commonality, aimed at a world brimming over with racism and xenophobia. Responding to the rise of neo-Nazi groups in Germany and Eastern Europe and the continued popularity of the National Front in France, Kristeva turns to the origins of the nation-state to illustrate the problematic nature of nationalism and its complex configurations in subsequent centuries. For Kristeva, the key to commonality can be found in Montesquieu's esprit general - his notion of the social body as a guaranteed hierarchy of private rights
