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

75 editions published between 1974 and 2010 in 10 languages and held by 1,534 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 )

71 editions published between 1969 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 1,291 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)

Nations without nationalism by Julia Kristeva( Book )

19 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 747 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

This incredible need to believe by Julia Kristeva( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 530 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

Hatred and forgiveness by Julia Kristeva( Book )

24 editions published between 2005 and 2012 in French and English and held by 453 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
The severed head : capital visions by Julia Kristeva( Book )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 279 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
