Kristeva rearticulates and extends her research of language, abjection, idealization, woman sexuality, love, and forgiveness.

Le Moi et le Ca, paru en 1923, est los angeles clé de voûte de ce qu'on appelle l. a. "seconde topique" chez Freud.

Meaning in linguistics is in no way equivalent to designation. In my view, it still remains indispensable to take into account the concept, the situations or the idea if we wish in our linguistic analysis to delimit a unit by its function of integrating into another larger unit. For me, the term 'integrating' means having a function in the whole, being able to be posited in a complementary syntagmatic relation. And in order to determine whether one form can complement another, one must know whether or not it corresponds to something at the level of the sign.
G. j, ai, mal, il, la, tete. (I have a head-ache) Each of these units could be found in another context and none can be divided into smaller units endowed with meaning. One cannot, that is, attribute to these syllables distinct meanings whose sum would be equal to the global meaning. The word tete (head), for example, cannot be divided into te te, two syllables which, if added together, accountfor the meaning tete. This principle of the division of the sentence into units endowed with meaning defines the first articulation of language.
The register of the signifiers, as opposed to the signifieds (the concepts), rejoins the register of the signifieds only through the mediation of the whole body of signifiers. This, schematically, is the meaning we can give to the Saussurian algorithm which inaugurates linguistics: ~. s The relationship between a signifier and its signified is effected through the mediation of the whole body of the signs of the language. According to Lacan's theories, the presence of this mediation will have a constitutive effect for the subject.
