19 editions published between 2000 and 2020 in English and held by 1,783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this volume, based on the series of Alexander Lectures she delivered at the University of Toronto, Julia Kristeva explores the philosophical aspects of Hannah Arendt's work: her understanding of such concepts as language, self, body, political space, and life. Kristeva's aim is to clarify contradictions in Arendt's thought as well as correct misapprehensions about her political and philosophical views."--Jacket

Hatred and forgiveness by Julia Kristeva( )

23 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 1,339 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. Kristeva rearticulates and extends her analysis of language, abjection, idealization, female sexuality, love, and forgiveness. She examines the "maladies of the soul," utilizing examples from her practice and the ailments of her patients, such as fatigue, irritability, and general malaise. She sources the Bible and texts by Marguerite Duras, St. Teresa of Avila, Roland Barthes, Simone de Beauvoir, and Georgia O'Keefe. Balancing political calamity and individual pathology, she addresses internal and external catastrophes and global and personal injuries, confronting the nature of depression, obliviousness, fear, and the agony of being and nothingness

41 editions published between 1980 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This incredible need to believe by Julia Kristeva( )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and Hungarian and held by 1,268 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
The severed head : capital visions by Julia Kristeva( )

10 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,262 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
The enchanted clock : a novel by Julia Kristeva( )

17 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in French and English and held by 1,197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the Palace of Versailles there is a fabulous golden clock, made for Louis XV by the king's engineer, Claude-Siméon Passemant. The astronomical clock shows the phases of the moon and the movements of the planets, and it will tell time -- hours, minutes, seconds, and even sixtieths of seconds -- until the year 9999. Passemant's clock brings the nature of time into sharp focus in Julia Kristeva's intricate, poetic novel The Enchanted Clock. Nivi Delisle, a psychoanalyst and magazine editor, nearly drowns while swimming off the Île de Ré; the astrophysicist Theo Passemant fishes her out of the water. They become lovers. While Theo wonders if he is descended from the clockmaker Passemant, Niv's son Stan, who suffers from occasional comas, develops a passion for the remarkable clock at Versailles. Soon Nivi is fixated on its maker. But then the clock is stolen, and when a young writer for Nivi's magazine mysteriously dies, the clock is found near his body. The Enchanted Clock combines past and present, jumping back and forth between points of view and across eras from eighteenth-century Versailles to the present day. Its stylistically inventive narrative voices bring both immediacy and depth to our understanding of consciousness. Nivi's life resembles her creator's in many respects, coloring Kristeva's customary erudition with autobiographical poignancy. Part detective mystery, part historical fiction, The Enchanted Clock is a philosophically and linguistically multifaceted novel, full of poetic ruminations on memory, love, and the transcendence of linear time. It is one of the most illuminating works of one of France's great writers and thinkers"

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 1,144 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

About Chinese women by Julia Kristeva( Book )

63 editions published between 1974 and 2010 in 7 languages and held by 1,074 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Avec la minutie de l'enquête sociologique et l'appareil critique de la philosophie, J. Kristeva étudie dans cet ouvrage paru pour la première fois en 1974 la spécificité chinoise au cours des siècles, qui se concentre en un point : la différence, voire la séparation radicale, qui existe en Occident entre hommes et femmes n'y a pas cours
Powers of horror : an essay on abjection by Julia Kristeva( Book )

21 editions published between 1982 and 2017 in English and held by 1,050 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, page 4 of cover
Passions of our time by Julia Kristeva( )

12 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 1,006 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The collection begins with ? recollection of celebrating, as a child in Bulgaria, Alphabet Day, the holiday honoring the Cyrillic letters. Kristeva considers literature with Barthes, freedom through Rousseau, Teresa of Avila and mystical experience, Simone de Beauvoir's dream life, and Antigone and the psychic life of women. A group of essays drawing on her psychoanalytic work delve into Freud, Lacan, maternal eroticism, and the importance of psychoanalysis today. She thinks through disability and normativity, monotheism and secularization, the need to believe and the desire to know. Finally, Kristeva discusses French culture and diversity, rethinking universalism and interrogating the potential for Islam and psychoanalysis to meet, and pays homage to de Beauvoir by rephrasing her dictum into the provocative "One is born woman, but I become one."
Language--the unknown : an initiation into linguistics by Julia Kristeva( Book )

30 editions published between 1900 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 835 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)

With an authorial voice that modulates between the erotic and the meditative, the ironic and the rancorous, The Samurai moves from Paris to Mao's China

Nations without nationalism by Julia Kristeva( Book )

22 editions published between 1990 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 782 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
