The practice of everyday life by Michel de Certeau ( Book )
55 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,208 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 )
28 editions published between 1970 and 2005 in 3 languages and held by 695 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Retrace les événements qui virent, à partir de 1632, la ville de Loudun, dans la Vienne, ravagée par la peste puis par la possession : les membres de la communauté des Ursulines, claquemurées pour se protéger, commencent à voir, dans la nuit du 21 septembre, un fantôme qui prend peu à peu la forme du curé Urbain Grandier. Celui-ci finira sur un bûcher le 18 août 1634
The writing of history by Michel de Certeau ( Book )
9 editions published between 1988 and 1992 in English and held by 669 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

L'abbé Grégoire, après 1789, a établi une enquête sur les patois en France. Le corpus des réponses, dont de larges extraits sont présentés ici, a fait l'objet d'une lecture à plusieurs voix.

Culture in the plural by Michel de Certeau ( Book )
18 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 419 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.""--BOOK JACKET

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

The practice of everyday life by Michel de Certeau ( Book )
11 editions published between 1988 and 1998 in English and held by 310 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
