View Author Bio
Kristeva, Julia : University de Paris VII
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.
"Kristeva's depiction of contrariety and anomaly at the heart of postmodernist theory is ingenious, provocative, and challenging."
"Kristeva changes the place of things: she always destroys the latest preconception, the one we thought we could be comforted by, the one of which we could be proud; what she displaces in the illusion that it has all been said already, that is, she removes the pressure of the signifiedin a word, stupidity; what she subverts is authoritythat of monological science, of filiation."
