Continuing on Powers of Horror: An Essay on Abjection, ch. 1 and 2.
We try to get clearer on Kristeva's talk of "object," the relationship between language and abjection, how Kristeva is advancing on Freud, how to be a mom that allows a kid to separate in a healthy way, and how abjection plays into religion and writing.
Don't miss Mark's Close Reading of the beginning of this text that allows you to further explore Kristeva's language and ideas.
End song: "Eyes of Fire" by Jill Freeman, as discussed on Nakedly Examined Music #28.
