Culture in the plural by Michel de Certeau( Book )

21 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 438 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 practice of everyday life by Michel de Certeau( Book )

26 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and German and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To remain unconsumed by consumer society -- this was the goal, pursued through a world of subtle and practical means, that beckoned throughout the first volume of The Practice of Everyday Life. The second volume of the work delves even deeper than did the first into the subtle tactics of resistance and private practices that make living a subversive art. Michel de Certeau, Luce Giard, and Pierre Mayol develop a social history of "making do" based on microhistories that move from the private sphere (of dwelling, cooking, and homemaking) to the public (the experience of living in a neighborhood). A series of interviews -- mostly with women -- allows us to follow the subjectsʹ individual routines, composed of the habits, constraints, and inventive strategies by which the speakers negotiate daily life. Through these accounts the speakers, "ordinary" people all, are revealed to be anything but passive consumers. Amid these experiences and voices, the ephemeral inventions of the "obscure heroes" of the everyday, we watch the art of making do become the art of living. This long-awaited second volume of de Certeauʹs masterwork, updated and revised in this first English edition, completes the picture begun in volume 1, drawing to the last detail the collective practices that define the texture, substance, and importance of the everyday
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 331 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 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
