Liverpool University Press

‘Risking Who One Is, at the Risk of Thinking: On Writing an Intellectual Biography of Julia Kristeva’, written by Alice Jardine, discusses the task of writing an intellectual biography and highlights the state of the discipline and the role of the contemporary critic as an arbiter of categories whose task is to define the contemporary and contemporary studies. In his essay, Jardine asks ‘How can one operate critically as an intellectual when one’s corpus, one’s object of critique, has been produced by a living artist, philosopher-critic, or writer with whom one feels deep affinity?’
