ABSTRACT. This study is grounded in the considerable body of scholarship examining Kristeva’s psychoanalytically informed notion of the subject, her urging on the singularity and plurality of existence, her conception of language and the speaking subject, and the theoretical and psychoanalytic substance of her fiction. As a result of these earlier research findings, this study sought to determine Kristeva’s affirmation of the critical position of embodiment to human existence, her employment of the concept of the semiotic, her analytical or psychoanalytic approach of fiction writing, and the underlying function of destructiveness in her conception of the subject. The theory that I shall seek to elaborate here puts considerable emphasis on Kristeva’s persistence on heterogeneity and alterity, her explanation of the link between the semiotic and the symbolic, her articulation of the connection between language and the body, and the psychosexual and racial accounts that establish her principles of freedom. pp. 94–100
