If one reads Kristeva regularily, it is possible to se how revolting her ideas maybe. She is always contradicing herself
for example, in one interview she can speak of French Xenopobia, and then immediately express
ideas towards eastern europe that is xenopobic,like"they are like stones"
I agree that kristeva's role is significant in intellectual developments,
but, it is also true that she is almost traditional intellectual, which I would actually say
about Derrida too among others. In France intellectuals traditioanally spoke
of revolts or revolutions, or of nausea and so on. Too
add to it Camus "Rebel" and Derridas recent talks on revolution as decision making(Perhaps or maybe)
Returning back to Kristeva, who brought-up by Dominican nuns in Bulgaria and later entered French intellectual sphere immediately
she simply decided to hand by hand with french intellectuals.So communism, maoism, and later multiculturalism.
also it is arguable how french intellectuals were looking at the world through Heidegger when they needed to be critical.
Because they knew about say Pol Pot, who studied in France, were he became Roussoust and practised his beliefs later by
destroying people, together with books?
Kristeva:abject,horror,terror.revolt, St.Agustine, Melancholy, love, desire, The Samurai, Pierro della Franceska.I wonder which chirch
