The Psychic Life: A Life in Time: Psychoanalysis and Culture

Julia Kristeva

Abstract


Last year I published an autobiographical text in the form of interviews with a young psychologist entitled Je me voyage. The title’s neologism gives a nod to my foreign status in the French language which has largely determined my psychosexual positioning in research and in writing; the psychic experience has been central to my life’s trajectory (which I will not elaborate on here.)  In my familial context, culture constituted a world that made life liveable —and I experienced life, due to the importance accorded to language, as survival, as an intimate resistance and an inherent creativity in social time.
