Is there interaction between love and work? If so, in what ways does it appear? The main incentive for this research is the notable increase of American and Dutch people who wish to spend more and more of their time working and who feel useless and robbed of their identity when separated from their jobs. It seems that work is considered more fulfilling and satisfying than love, which can be undermined by failing relationships, tension, depression, violence, addiction, crime or angry and unmanageable children. Whereas Proust described love in a milieu where most of the work was done by servants and artists, Freud was convinced that love and work were the two main pillars of society. This view has been echoed by psychologists, sociologists, philosophers and novelists. However, a new phenomenon is that men and women share love and work. Finding the right balance between the two is a hot topic in “how to” books, newspaper and magazine articles but the underlying connections have received little if any scrutiny. In fact it may well be a mission impossible since, as the Frankfurt School asserted, the capitalist powers, in search of profit, urge politicians to lure men, women and children onto the work floor by telling them work is a duty that not only will provide disposable income but also happiness and fulfillment in life. Hence people internalize this message without asking themselves why continuous consumption is more important than giving and receiving love, which they crave but seldom find. Although focusing on middle-class people between the ages of twenty five and forty who are travelling the “highway of life”, have paid jobs, a relationship of at least three years and children, this study should be of interest to everyone.

Most of us fantasize about what it would be like to walk away from work. Denice Kronau did it. On the surface, Denice had it all: a great job as CEO of a $100 million company, offices in thirty countries, and travel around the world. However, her great job was killing her because she couldn't keep work in perspective. She let it take over her life and was exhausted, overworked, overweight, and endlessly running on a hamster wheel. When it became too much, she took an unpaid sabbatical and spent months regaining a sense of balance in her life. She explored what drove her to work in such a destructive way and discovered many insights about work. More importantly, she found what made her happy at work. In "Falling in Love with Work," Denice shares many of these key elements, such as: We're human beings, not human "doings." Don't feed the urgent while starving the important. It's perfectly fine to "Find out what you don't do well, and don't do it" (to quote Alf, the 1980s TV character). Be happy, now. Don't postpone happiness while waiting for a one-time event. About the Author Denice Kronau is a veteran of corporate life. During her thirty-year career she has held positions of chief executive officer, chief financial officer, and chief diversity officer. She has worked for notable global companies such as Altria, Diageo PLC, and Siemens AG.

At last, we can say the word love at work. We can acknowledge what has been true all along: love is what works at work. Love has been just outside the office door for centuries. We have heard its knock, but we have said, not here . Some enlightened leaders have recently moved to, not yet . But finally, Nigel Cutts has said, now . In this beautiful book he has opened the door. He has done this because love is what produces results. People perform best when they are loved: when they are respected, when they can soar because of who they are their experience, their talents, their capacity, their intelligence is cherished. We all know this. Now we can stop believing the nonsense. We can stop putting off putting love on the top of the list of required expertise in leaders.

This volume begins with a new essay by Julia Kristeva, 'The Adolescent Novel', in which she examines the relation between novelistic writing and the experience of adolescence as an 'open structure'. It is this blend of the literary with the psychoanalytic that places Kristeva's work central to current thinking, from semiotics and critical theory to feminism and psychoanalysis. The essays in this volume offer insight into the workings of Kristeva's thought, ranging from her analyses of sexual difference, female temporality and the perceptions of the body to the mental states of abjection and melancholia, and their representation in painting and literature. Kristeva's persistent humanity, her profound understanding of the dynamics of intention and creativity, mark her out as one of the leading theoreticians of desire. Each essay offers the reader a new insight into the many aspects that make up Kristeva's entire oeuvre.
