Alice Jardine, At the Risk of Thinking: An Intellectual Biography of Julia Kristeva – discussed at the New Books Network


At the Risk of Thinking: An Intellectual Biography of Julia Kristeva
 
(Bloomsbury, 2020) is the first biography of Julia Kristeva–one of the most celebrated intellectuals in the world. Alice Jardine brings Kristeva’s work to a broader readership by connecting Kristeva’s personal journey, from her childhood in Communist Bulgaria to her adult life as an international public intellectual based in Paris, with the history of her ideas. Informed by extensive interviews with Kristeva herself, this telling of a remarkable woman’s life story also draws out the complexities of Kristeva’s writing, emphasizing her call for an urgent revival of bold interdisciplinary thinking in order to understand–and to act in–today’s world.

Discussed at the New Books Network with August Baker. Thanks to dmf for the link.
