The parasite by Michel Serres( Book )

14 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Influential philosopher Michel Serres's foundational work uses fable to explore how human relations are identical to that of the parasite to the host body. Among Serres's arguments is that by being pests, minor groups can become major players in public dialogue - creating diversity and complexity vital to human life and thought."--Book cover
Le contrat naturel by Michel Serres( Book )

Le Système de Leibniz et ses modèles mathématiques by Michel Serres( Book )

63 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leibniz est de notre temps, il est notre prédécesseur. Il a commencé de construire le monde où nous vivons, il l'a reconnu avant nous, mieux que nous. Nos mathématiques naissent avec lui, nos sciences physiques sont prévues par lui, nos réseaux de communication, nos stocks de données, nos arts du signe et du langage... sont déjà dans ses écrits, ainsi que les terres où ces formes s'incarnent. Leibniz habite nos débuts, il hante nos achèvements. Suivre les voies, les carrefours, les connexions de son système, en décrire les façons locales, en calculer la cohésion globale, c'est déjà explorer l'espace d'aujourd'hui. Le fil d'Ariane ici choisi est ce qu'il appelait : mathématique universelle. Sans doute il en est d'autres, celui-là est le plus facile : économie, simplicité, démonstration. Ce fil conduit des multiplicités les plus diffuses, comme celles de l'histoire, à l'unité d'un point. Le réseau est une harmonie : musique, accord et paix. Le système est optimiste, pourrons-nous en reconstruire un aussi beau, parmi les bruits et la fureur ?
Les cinq sens by Michel Serres( Book )

62 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in French and Undetermined and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le nouveau corps confie au sport son souffle, son cœur, sa sueur et ne travaille presque plus de force mais sur des codes; sanitaire et aseptique, rectifié par les remèdes et la prédiction médicale, il repousse la mort de trente ans et l'antique souffrance quasi définitivement; diététique, grignotant des calories du bout des dents, il absorbe ce que ses pères n'auraient pas reconnu pour nourriture ni pour breuvage; nu et libre sur les plages mixtes, le nouveau corps sexuel se reproduit peu et artificiellement parfois; toutes nouveautés contrebalancées par les squelettes ravagés d'épidémies sans recours, se multipliant et mourant par millions vers l'hémisphère Sud, livrés à toutes les horreurs dont nous nous délivrons; comment ces corps si vite changés en moins d'un demi-siècle habiteraient-ils le même monde, sentiraient-ils par les mêmes sens, logeraient-ils la même âme ou une semblable langue que l'ancienne chair accablée de poids et de nécessités, malade, sale, affamée ou repue, verbeuse, soumise au labeur et non à l'exercice, à la morale plus qu'à la médecine, dont la philosophie de nos pères a parlé?
Le tiers-instruit by Michel Serres( Book )

30 editions published between 1991 and 2004 in French and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comment former, c'est-à-dire instruire et éduquer l'homme de demain? De cet homme, l'ouvrage dessine un portrait dans une démarche où la philosophie rejoint les préoccupations les plus concrètes de l'enseignement
The troubadour of knowledge by Michel Serres( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What do we do when we raise a child, teach a student, or educate a person as a member of society? For the French philosopher Michel Serres, all these forms of pedagogy require painful yet exhilarating departures from home and encounters with otherness. In this wide-ranging meditation on learning and difference, Serres explores numerous pathways in philosophy, science, and literature to argue that the best contemporary education requires knowledge of both science's general truths and literature's singular stories. He heralds a new pedagogy that claims that from the crossbreeding of the humanities and the sciences a new educational ideal can be born: the troubadour of knowledge
The natural contract by Michel Serres( Book )

Variations on the body by Michel Serres( Book )

29 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in French and English and held by 358 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

World-renowned philosopher, Michel Serres writes a text in praise of the body and movement, in praise of teachers of physical education, coaches, mountain guides, athletes, dancers, mimes, clowns, artisans, and artists. This work describes the variations, the admirable metamorphoses that the body can accomplish. While animals lack such a variety of gestures, postures, and movements, the fluidity of the human body mimics the leisure of living beings and things; what's more, it creates signs. Already here, within its movements and metamorphoses, the mind is born. The five senses are not the only

Atlas by Michel Serres( Book )

27 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in 5 languages and held by 335 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Qu'est-ce qui change, aujourd'hui, dans le monde? Les sciences, leurs méthodes et leurs inventions, leurs façons de voir et de transformer les choses ; les techniques, donc le travail, son organisation et le lien social qu'il suppose. Comment, donc au bout du compte, se repérer dans le nouveau monde qui se prépare et remplace l'ancien?
Le parasite by Michel Serres( Book )

22 editions published between 1979 and 2014 in French and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Qui mange à table d'hôte, invité gourmand, parfois beau causeur est dit parasite. La bête petite qui vit de son hôte, qui change son état courant et le met en risque de mort, est dite, encore parasite. Le bruit qui interrompt sans cesse nos dialogues ou intercepte nos messages, voici toujours le parasite. Pourquoi nomme d'un même mot un homme, une bête et une onde? Voici un livre d'images d'abord comme réponse à la question, une galerie de portraits. Il faudra un peu deviner qui se dissimule sous les plumes et sous les poils, et sous l'accoutrement du fabuleux. Des animaux, grands et petits, mangent ensemble, leur festin est interrompu. Comment? Par qui? Pourquoi? Sortent les animaux, les repas continuent. Nous mangerons avec Jean-Jacques, avec Tartuffe, avec Socrate, avec les frères de Joseph ... Le parasite prend et ne donne rien : des mots, des bruits, du vent. L'hôte donne et ne reçoit rien. Voici la fléche simple, irréversible, sans retour, elle vole entre nous, c'est l'atome de la relation et c'est l'angle du changement. Abus avant l'usage et vol avant l'échange. On peut construire, à partir d'elle, ou repenser au moins, techniques et travaux, économie et société."--Page 4 of cover
Jouvences sur Jules Verne by Michel Serres( Book )

18 editions published between 1974 and 1991 in French and Undetermined and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Angels, a modern myth by Michel Serres( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 312 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this new work Michel Serres, France's foremost philosopher of science, explores how traditional images of angels in art and legend foretell the preoccupations of modern life. Divided, as between Heaven and Hell, into First and Third Worlds, our societies search for ways to make contact, both by means of the most basic interpersonal relations and high-tech communications. The role of the messenger, Serres argues, is as important now as it was in Biblical times, perhaps more, and yet we lack a philosophy which can explain this role - a philosophy of movement, of communication. Angels: A Modern Myth offers such a philosophy, showing how angels as message-bearers are still part of our modern world, our means of bringing together and understanding science, law, and religion, and perhaps also the means of satisfying our need for reason, justice, and consolation. Abundantly illustrated with an astounding breadth of images ranging from Renaissance paintings to film stills, satellite photographs, computer microchips, and medical microscopy, this thought-provoking book addresses some of the most crucial issues of our time and will make essential reading for anyone seeking to comprehend the new phase of human development engendered by the transformation of our world by information technology
La naissance de la physique dans le texte de Lucrèce : fleuves et turbulences by Michel Serres( Book )

16 editions published between 1977 and 1990 in French and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The five senses : a philosophy of mingled bodies (I) by Michel Serres( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Five Senses represents a defining break in his work, in which he leaves behind traditional philosophy to explore the history and culture of science. By examining the deleterious effects of the systematic downgrading of the senses in Western philosophy, Serres traces a topology of human perception. Writing against the Cartesian tradition and in praise of empiricism, he demonstrates repeatedly, and lyrically, the sterility of systems of knowledge divorced from bodily experience
Biogea by Michel Serres( Book )

4 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Biogea is a mixture of poetry, philosophy, science, and biography exemplary of the style that has made Michel Serres one of the most extraordinary thinkers of his age. His philosophical and poetic inquiry sings in praise of earth and life, what he names singularly as Biogea."--Amazon.com
Récits d'humanisme by Michel Serres( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in French and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'auteur nous raconte comment nous réussissons ou échouons à devenir humain. Ces mille et un récits dessinent, en mosaïque un nouvel humanisme
