About the Author

Julia Kristeva, internationally known psychoanalyst and critic, is Professor of Linguistics at the University de Paris VII. She has hosted a French television series and is the author of many critically acclaimed books published by Columbia University Press in translation, including Time and Sense: Proust and the Experience of Literature and the novel, Possessions.


Assuming the voices of psychoanalyst, scholar, and postmodern polimicist, Kristeva discusses both the conflicts and commonalities among the Greek, Christian, Romantic and contemporary discourses on love, desire, and self... the analytical work is punctuated throughout by the personal, so that intelligently moving thoughts on motherhood aptly intervene. Kristeva makes a very strong case for the claim that the goal of analysis is not a truth in, but a dynamic rebirth of, the analysand via language. Choice
