Abstract

As early as 1969 in Semeiotiké Julia Kristeva had already attempted a sort of short-circuit by connecting the linguistic and semiotic approaches to the psychoanalytical with her proposal of “semanalysis”. She compares the Cartesian ego, the transcendental ego theorized by Husserlian phenomenology and the self of enunciation linguistics with the doubling of the subject thematized by Freud and his theory of the unconscious. To focus on the unconscious means to modify the object of linguistics given that it implies describing signification as a heterogeneous process. Beginning from such topics addressed in this framework, Kristeva reflects on poetic language considering its implications for the question of the speaking subject. Moreover, she focuses on the I-other relationship, therefore on dialogue and inevitably on the Bakhtinian conception which on the basis of thematization of dialogue itself achieves a sort of Copernican revolution à propos the I-other relationship. Beyond poetic language and literary writing, beyond the theme of dialogue and of the polylogue and in relation to the question of the other, another central theme in Kristeva’s work is the foreigner, the stranger
