The writing of history by Michel de Certeau( Book )

92 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 1,428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A leading intellectual member of France's Freudian school, Michel de Certeau combined principles from the disciplines of religion, history, and psychoanalysis in order to redefine historiography and rethink the categories of history. In The Writing of History, de Certeau examines the West's changing conceptions of the very role and nature of history itself, from the seventeenth-century attempts to formulate a "history of man" to Freud's Moses and Monotheism with which de Certeau interprets historical practice as a function of mankind's feelings of loss, mourning, and absence. Exhaustively researched and stunningly innovative, The Writing of History is a crucial introduction to de Certeau's work and is destined to become a classic of modern thought
The practice of everyday life by Michel de Certeau( Book )

54 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,358 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
The possession at Loudun by Michel de Certeau( Book )

37 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is August 18, 1634. Father Urbain Grandier, convicted of sorcery that led to the demonic possession of the Ursuline nuns of provincial Loudun in France, confesses his sins on the porch of the church of Saint-Pierre, then perishes in flames lit by his own exorcists. A dramatic tale that has inspired many artistic retellings, including a novel by Aldous Huxley and an incendiary film by Ken Russell, the story of the possession at Loudun here receives a detailed analysis from the Jesuit historian Michel de Certeau. Interweaving substantial excerpts from primary historical documents with commentary, de Certeau shows how the plague of sorceries and possessions in France that climaxed in the events at Loudun both revealed the deepest fears of a society in traumatic flux and accelerated its transformation. In this psychological history, de Certeau brings to life a people torn between the decline of centralized religious authority and the rise of science and reason, wracked by violent anxiety over what or whom to believe. --book cover
Heterologies : discourse on the other by Michel de Certeau( Book )

40 editions published between 1985 and 2010 in English and held by 612 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The practice of everyday life by Michel de Certeau( Book )

31 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and German and held by 604 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
Une politique de la langue : la Révolution française et les patois : l'enquête de Grégoire by Michel de Certeau( Book )

The mystic fable : the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries by Michel de Certeau( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 468 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The culmination of de Certeau's lifelong engagement with the human sciences, this volume is both an analysis of Christian mysticism during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and an application of this influential scholar's transdisciplinary historiography."--Publisher description
Culture in the plural by Michel de Certeau( Book )

21 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 443 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 )

9 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 341 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 )

6 editions published between 1995 and 2005 in English and held by 234 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
