New Maladies of the Soul Paperback
Part of the European Perspectives: A Series in Social Thought and Cultural Criticism series
These days, who still has a soul? asks Julia Kristeva in her psychoanalytic exploration, New Maladies of the Soul.
Hailed by Peter Brooks in the New York Times as "a critic of great psychoanalytic insight," Kristeva reveals to readers a new kind of patient, symptomatic of an age of political upheaval, mass-mediated culture, and the dramatic overhaul of familial and sexual mores.
The book poses a troubling question about the human subject in the West today: Is the psychic space that we have traditionally known disappearing?
