About Author

Julia Kristeva is an internationally known psychoanalyst and critic, is Professor of Linguistics at the University de Paris VII and chief proponent of semanalyse, a term she coined to name the discipline that blends semiotics with pyschoanalysis.Noted by the San Fransisco Chronicle-Examiner as a woman whose writings demonstrate "her amazing command of history, politics, literature, linguistics, and psychoogy," Kristeva recently 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.
