    One of the most popular Kristeva s book is discovering the question of identity Today this question might be felled of empty determinations Who am I How could I behave These problems were asked by ancient philosophers, but in modern culture they are essential again as every fundamental issue Reading this book I couldn t really found out the fundamental answers It seems that Kristeva deeply understands the meaning of question and she also correctly asks us about identity But farther and farter it gets harder to understand where she sees the possible answers The most interesting sections of this work are the earliest chapters Kristeva seems to run out of steam and stop abruptly once she begins to discuss foreignness and strangeness in contemporary culture She analyzes her own experience in France and says that not really feels like at home There is a closed cycle she doesn t feel at home outside of France That s why she emphasizes the main core of her book we are strangers for ourselves in this world in a way of existentialism, especially it reminds S ren Kierkegaard Kristeva writes Free of ties with his own...

    The problem that I had with this book is that it takes what appears to be a personal experience and universalizes that experience as one of all foreigners The language that is employed here almost seems like it would work better as an autobiography or fiction.The historical facts given work as a survey of the notion of the stranger foreigner throughout centuries, but the first chapter, which is the account of what the foreigner experiences in the contemporary world, is very detached from the rest of the book As charming as it may be to read about how the perception of the foreigner has kept changing in history, it fails to shed light on the current agenda.The last two chapters of the book focus on a political solution that derives from psychoanalysis, stating that with Freud s notion of the uncanny, one realizes the strangeness of oneself T...

    A sad sack of induction fallacies It horrifies me to hear Kristeva s woebegone personal experiences projected into vague half truths about the identity of the immigrant populace Her positioning of the foreigner as an Abject entity holds these people in bad faith, with the discourse of this novel only limiting the potential of the immigrant as a viable and autonomous entity Further, constant citations of the Ancient Greek philosophic greats is grating and unoriginal I shut this ...

    A book that is at once highly acute and powerful in places and one that is myopic and lacking for scope and detail in other sections, but altogether, a very necessary book Kristeva examines what it means to be a stranger or alien in another land, and as someone who came to Paris from her native Bulgaria as a graduate student, as someone who is both a linguist and a psychoanalyst and maintains an active clinical practice , Kristeva is in a great place in so many ways to consider the plight of the stranger in a strange land The opening section Toccata and Fugue for the Foreigner is widely anthologized and a great piece of writing that can stand on its own while the chapter on Paul and Augustine is also very good Where Kristeva is less skilled is when she speaks of our contemporary times or, at least, the times a few decades ago when the book was written she seems to embark from her personal journey with the view her own experience can well stand in for the experience of any and every foreigner Also, she tilts her earlier arguements towards promoting a European Union like unity of all nations a...

    Forse ha ragione Marcel Proust quando afferma che l opera letteraria non altro che uno strumento ottico che consente al lettore di focalizzare e leggere meglio la realt Libri che ti trovi davanti pi o meno per caso nei quali cerchi di trovare qualche risposta alle tue domande..I morti di Parigi, come quelli di Ankara, di Beirut, di Aleppo, deflagrano ancora in me e sento il bisogno di dare forma all angoscia e alla pena Inizio a leggere i giornali, a scrivere e a cancellare quel che ho scritto, che avverto irrimediabilmente banale e inadeguato rispetto a quello che stiamo vivendo.Riprendo in mano Stranieri a noi stessi, un classico della letteratura interculturale, ripubblicato ad oltre 25 anni di distanza da Donzelli con una bella introduzione dell autrice, nel quale Julia Kristeva interroga il significato di straniero nella cultura occidentale.Tema indubbiamente impervio da esplorare, che ci mette di fronte a pulsioni ancestrali, alla diffidenza e alla paura di fronte all Altro Che non riguarda naturalmente solo identit geografiche e culturali diverse, ma anche la nostra irriducibile estraneit a noi stessi Non solo chi vive da straniero in un altro Paese ma anche chi straniero tra i suoi simili e lo straniero che abita in noi, senza il cui riconoscimento.Julia Kristeva, bulgara trapiantata in Francia, americana d adozione, che si defin...

    Kristeva s meditation on the foreigner as a double of our own inner self isn t as lively and precise as some of her best work, but it s still very perceptive and worth a read The notion that the foreigner returns to us as a dark reflection of our inner being, and that we can only love or hate them to the degree that we accept or reject ourselves, is supported by many examples from antiquity to the modern era most especially, and obviously, Camus and Sartre There s a final section, seemingly as relevant today as it was when she wrote the book almost 30 years ago, about the new wave of migrants to France, and concerns about assimilation, that she incorporates into her thesis This all gets a bit abstract, and the language isn...

    Kristeva profundiza en la noci n del extranjero en un libro precioso pero desparejo Sus reflexiones est n muy bellamente expuestas, sobre todo en los primeros cap tulos, en los que aborda diferentes temas relacionados con el sentir migrante a trav s de una prosa que se aleja de la frialdad acad mica para intimar m s con el lector que se presupone tambi n extranjero, claro que no es requisito obligatorio para disfrutar del texto Sin embargo, esta subjetividad inicial, que para m era gran parte del at...

    Being an outsider and knowing what happens with tribal issues of acceptance of those like me, I love the revelation of Kristeva s exploration of otherness and feel validated for the first time.
