Description

"The Stranger's Voice" examines some of Julia Kristeva's major psychoanalytic texts which focus on themes of women's depression, feminine identity, motherhood, and the need to believe as these themes relate to the power of religious language in a therapeutic relationship. The central thesis of the book is that attention to critiques of religious discourse offered by those (in this case, Julia Kristeva) in the psychoanalytic tradition will facilitate a more fully nuanced approach to an interdisciplinary model for pastoral theology.
