Most widely held works by Luce Giard
Culture in the plural by Michel de Certeau( Book )

36 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this translation, Michel de Certeau anticipates current debates surrounding multicultralism and social diversity, providing a prescient critique of identity politics. De Certeau considers the idea of culture itself, unveiling the specific political and social conflicts culture is designed to conceal. He then looks at culture from several methodological and theoretical points of view, positioning his ideal of culture in the plural in opposition to an exclusivist notion of culture as "the best that has been thought and said."
The capture of speech and other political writings by Michel de Certeau( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this foundational exploration of political expression and participation, de Certeau examines who has the right to speak, how this right is acquired, and what happens when this right is denied or inhibited. He emphasizes that all too often free speech is upheld in the abstract while social institutions work in such a way to deny access to effective communication

Michel de Certeau : interpretation and its other by Jeremy Ahearne( Book )

10 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in French and Undetermined and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michel de Certeau died on January 9, 1986, leaving behind him the memory of an "intelligence without bounds" (Roger Chartier) and of "one of the boldest, the most secret, and the most sensitive minds of our time" (Julia Kristeva). Since 1984, with the translation of The Practice of Everyday Life, his writings have begun to circulate across a number of disciplines in the English-speaking world. This book is the first full-length study of Certeau's thought, designed as a guide to draw out not only the exceptional range but the overall coherence of his oeuvre. The author focuses on those intertexts that work most powerfully in Certeau's major writings: contemporary French historiography, the writings of early modern mystics and travelers, Michel Foucault and Pierre Bourdieu, Freud, the linguistics of "utterance," and a broad spectrum of work on contemporary cultural practices

The feast of fools; a theological essay on festivity and fantasy by Harvey Cox( Book )

7 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in French and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author defines festivity as the capacity for genuine revelry and joyous celebration and fantasy as the faculty for envisioning radically alternative life situations. He proposes that a revival of both feast and fantasy will rejuvenate modern spirtuality by imitating the medieval Feast of Fools, where spirtual life was celebrated while political church traditions were socially mocked and evaluated
La fable mystique : XVIe-XVIIe siècle by Michel de Certeau( Book )

8 editions published in 2013 in French and Spanish and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La Fable mystique, I a paru en 1982. L'auteur travaillait au second volume quand il est mort, en 1987. Pour faire aboutir le projet de Michel de Certeau, son exécutrice testamentaire, Luce Giard, a dû modifier le plan initialement prévu et combler les vides par des articles déjà parus. Le livre comme l'auteur sont devenus des classiques. Il leur revient d'avoir fait apparaître un continent de culture qui, aux XVIe et XVIIe siècles, couvre une expérience individuelle et une expression littéraire au carrefour du religieux, de l'extra-rationnel, de l'extase, de l'amour et de la folie. Michel de Certeau explore ce continent dans une double dimension : historique, avec les conditions d'apparition et de développement du phénomène, et expressive, avec la manière dont s'exprime le discours mystique, qui, comme celui de la folie, exprime autre chose que ce qu'il dit. L'auteur fait revivre là, dans toute la complexité de leur personnalité, la série des grands mystiques qu'il a beaucoup fréquentés : saint Jean de la Croix, Nicolas de Cues, Pascal. On retrouve dans ces évocations tout son sens de la spiritualité, ses intuitions analytiques et son impeccable érudition
The mystic fable by Michel de Certeau( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Though the second volume of this groundbreaking work remained in fragments at the time of his death, Michel de Certeau left his literary executor detailed instructions for its completion, which formed the basis for the present work. Together, both volumes solidify his place as a touchstone of 20th-century literature and philosophy, and continue his exploration of the paradoxes of historiography; the construction of social reality through practice, testimony and belief; the theorisation of speech in angelology and glossolalia; and the interplay of prose and poetry in discourses of the ineffable
The practice of everyday life by Michel de Certeau( Book )

4 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Michel de Certeau considers the uses to which social representation and modes of social behavior are put by individuals and groups, describing the tactics available to the common man for reclaiming his own autonomy from the all-pervasive forces of commerce, politics, and culture. In exploring the public meaning of ingeniously defended private meanings, de Certeau draws on an immense theoretical literature in analytic philosophy, linguistics, sociology, semiology, and anthropology--to speak of an apposite use of imaginative literature
