Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This innovative introductory text clearly explains the most complex ideas of Julia Kristeva - one of the most influential critics and theorists of contemporary culture. Offering new insights into the central themes of her work it explains clearly such key concepts as the 'chora', 'Oedipus' and 'abjection', as well as 'revolt' and the 'feminine genius'. Kristeva's intellectual development is set in its historical and political context and the creative power of her work is highlighted. Finally, a new interview discusses Kristeva's intellectual and political aspirations. Offering a clear, comprehensive and stimulating account of the work and thought of this inspiring figure, Julia Kristeva: Live Theory is an invaluable guide for students of literature, philosophy, cultural studies and gender studies.
