The Philosophy of French Intellectual Julia Kristeva

Preparation for publication, in both print and digital editions, of a volume of essays devoted to the thought of the French philosopher, psychoanalyst, feminist theorist, and novelist Julia Kristeva. (36 months)

A collaboration of about 30 scholars will relate an oeuvre of major contemporary intellectual significance to public concerns through interdisciplinary dialogue. Julia Kristeva’s multidisciplinary thought in philosophy, literature, feminist theory, and psychoanalysis unifies the collaboration. Her intellectual autobiography will provide general access to the scholarly dialogue. The dialogue, composed of essays by her foremost interpreters and critics together with her replies, will interpret, question, and extend the theoretical writings. It will address contemporary intellectual and cultural movements. It will discuss Kristeva’s public works on disability, health, and motherhood. The only published full bibliography will provide access to the original writings. The project is designed to stimulate further multidisciplinary scholarship and provide models for bringing the humanities to a general audience. The book will be the next volume in the Library of Living Philosophers series.
