The book brings the thought of Julia Kristeva to bear on the challenge of sexual differentiation in a world that both privileges difference yet continues to be threatened by otherness. In conversation with feminist theology and Christian ethics, it explores the role and the ramifications of being embodied subjects. The book utilizes Kristeva's thought to probe the roots of violence against women and how violence continues to shape humanity's psyche. Kristeva's contribution to feminist theology and Christian ethics emerges through a comparative analysis with leading feminist theologian Rosemary Radford Ruether. Ruether probes more deeply than most the pervasive misogyny within the Christian tradition. While Kristeva exposes the deeply biological (and so determined) roots of violence against women, her insights provide the needed understanding that can shift the direction of our thought in addressing the threat of the other. The book considers how theology (via Ruether) rather than Kristeva offers the tools to guide us through this opening.

Author Bio: Christine Jamieson teaches Christian Ethics in the Department of Theological Studies at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. Her research draws on the work of Julia Kristeva and Canadian theologian and philosopher, Bernard Lonergan. Her doctoral work focused on social ethics and from that basis her research engages in ethical reflection on challenging 21st century issues such as stem cell research, end of life issues, genetic technology and values conflict in the healthcare setting. She is also engaged in interdisciplinary work with a biblical scholar exploring ethical deliberation in the Bible.
