"In this volume, based on the series of Alexander Lectures she delivered at the University of Toronoto, Julia Kristeva explores the philosophical aspects of Hannah Arendt's work: her understanding of such concepts as language, self, body, political space, and life.

Hatred and forgiveness by Julia Kristeva ( )
13 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,022 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Throughout Kristeva develops the notion that psychoanalysis is the key to serenity, with its processes of turning back, looking back, investigating the self, and refashioning psychical damage into something useful and beautiful. Constant questioning, Kristeva contends, is essential to achieving the coming to terms we all seek at the core of forgiveness. --Book Jacket
Powers of horror : an essay on abjection by Julia Kristeva ( Book )
15 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and held by 938 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 severed head capital visions by Julia Kristeva ( )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 839 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
Language--the unknown : an initiation into linguistics by Julia Kristeva ( Book )
19 editions published between 1989 and 1996 in English and held by 790 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)
Revolution in poetic language by Julia Kristeva ( Book )
11 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 782 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The portable Kristeva by Julia Kristeva ( Book )
12 editions published between 1997 and 2002 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 feminine and the sacred by Catherine Clément ( Book )
12 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 700 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In November 1996, Catherine Clement and Julia Kristeva began a correspondence exploring the subject of the sacred. In this collection of those letters Catherine Clement, writing from Dakar, Senegal, approaches the topic from an anthropologist's point of view and Julia Kristeva responds from a psychoanalytic perspective. Their correspondence leads them to a controversial and fundamental question: Is there anything sacred that can at the same time be considered strictly feminine? The two voices of the book work in tandem, fleshing out ideas, blending together into a melody of experience. Two women, writing to each other about two themes, have produced a dialogue that delves into the mysteries of a woman's experience of belief, the relationship between faith and sexuality, the body and the senses - an experience, they argue, women feel with special intensity. Although their discourse is not necessarily about theology, Clement and Kristeva consider the role of women and femininity in the religions of the world, from Christianity and Judaism to Confucianism and African animism. The authors are the first to admit that what they have undertaken is "as impossible to accomplish as it is fascinating." Nevertheless, their lively, free-minded exchange succeeds in raising questions that are perhaps more important to ask than to answer."--BOOK JACKET

Nations without nationalism by Julia Kristeva ( Book )
11 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 611 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
La révolution du langage poétique; l'avant-garde à la fin du XIXe siècle, Lautréamont et Mallarmé by Julia Kristeva ( Book )
29 editions published between 1974 and 1985 in French and Undetermined and held by 604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Julia Kristeva est un phénomène: sa capacité de s'informer à des sources multiples (linguistique, sémiotique, littérature, philosophie, etc.) et de dominer son information, de l'intégrer dans une trame discursive (en vue d'une thèse) est admirable. Tout comme sa conviction profonde d'une compatibilité des "avant-gardes", ainsi que le note Pierre Pachet. L'objet du livre est le langage poétique comme "lieu où l'ordre symbolique est perturbé par la jouissance, où le code est travaillé de ruptures, de négativité". Mallarmé et Lautréamont sont presque des "faire-valoir": Julia Kristeva s'intéresse à leurs oeuvres dans la mesure où celles-ci manifestent, dès la fin du siècle dernier, "l'émergence du domaine sémiotique dans la poésie". Riche et discutable. Accès difficile
