Powers of horror : an essay on abjection by Julia Kristeva ( Book )
72 editions published between 1974 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 1,490 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
Language--the unknown : an initiation into linguistics by Julia Kristeva ( Book )
65 editions published between 1969 and 2007 in 5 languages and held by 1,258 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 www.jstor.org (Feb. 5, 2014)

The feminine and the sacred by Catherine Clément ( Book )
13 editions published between 2001 and 2010 in English and held by 738 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."--Jacket
