Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Julia Kristeva extends the definition of revolt beyond politics per se. May '68 in France expressed a fundamental version of freedom- not freedom to succeed, but freedom to revolt. Political revolutions ultimately betray revolt because they cease to question themselves. Revolt, as I understand it-psychic revolt, analytic revolt, artistic revolt-refers to a permanent state of questioning, of transformations, an endless probing of appearances. In this book, Julia Kristeva extends the definition of revolt beyond politics per se. Kristeva sees revolt as a state of permanent questioning and transformation, of change that characterizes psychic life and, in the best cases, art. For her, revolt is not simply about rejection and destruction-it is a necessary process of renewal and regeneration.
