Summary

Summary

Schippers provides a very readable and balanced account of the complex relations between Kristeva's thought and contemporary feminism. Her detailed attention to Kristeva's most recent writings is especially valuable. While making some telling criticisms of Kristeva, Schippers seeks to make Kristeva's ideas productive for feminist political thinking, and in this she certainly succeeds.

Alison Stone, Reader in European Philosophy, Lancaster University

In this new study, Birgit Schippers provides an engaging appraisal of the complex relationship between Julia Kristeva, an important and influential figure within contemporary Continental thought, and feminist theory. Drawing in particular on Kristeva's recent writings on revolt, female genius and freedom, Schippers makes a case for Kristeva's significant contribution to a feminist project that is sympathetic to her account of fluid subjectivity, her critique of identity politics and the deeply ethical orientation of her work.

Key features
