Linguist, psychoanalyst, social and cultural theorist, and novelist, Kristevas broad interdisciplinary appeal has impacted areas across the humanities and social sciences.S. K. Keltners book provides the first comprehensive introduction to the breadth of Kristevas work. In an original and insightful analysis, Keltner presents Kristevas thought as the coherent development and elaboration of a complex, multidimensional threshold constitutive of meaning and subjectivity. The threshold indicates Kristevas primary sphere of concern, the relationship between the speaking being and its particular social and historical conditions- and Kristevas interdisciplinary approach.

Kristevas vision, Keltner argues, opens a unique perspective within contemporary discourses attentive to issues of meaning, subjectivity, and social and political life. By emphasizing Kristevas attention to the permeable borders of psychic and social life, Keltner offers innovative readings of the concepts most widely discussed in Kristeva scholarship: the semiotic and symbolic, abjection, love, and loss.

She also provides new interpretations of some of the most controversial issues surrounding Kristevas work, including Kristevas conceptions of intimacy, social and cultural difference, and Oedipal subjectivity, by contextualizing them within her methodological approach and oeuvre as a whole.Julia Kristeva: Thresholds is an engaging and accessible introduction to Kristevas theoretical and fictional works that will be of interest to both students and scholars across the humanities and social sciences.
