The Certeau Reader (Blackwell Readers) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This volume brings together, for the first time, a variety of texts from Certeau's book and journal publications which have proved important in the various disciplines where Certeau has had an influence.

Synopsis:

For the first time, a reader brings together a comprehensive selection of key texts by Michel de Certeau. The selection reflects the impressive breadth of the French theorist's work, which ranges from history, anthropology, and philosophy to semiotics, sociology, and psychology.

An introduction by editor Graham Ward outlines de Certeau's biography and places his work within the cultural context of his time, in terms of both French Catholicism and contemporary intellectual debates. It examines the major preoccupations of the philosopher's writings — the other, spatiality, colonialism in its various forms, the body, and the relationship between discourse and oppression — and locates them within the overall development of his thinking. Finally, Ward comments on the current rediscovery of de Certeau and its ramifications for Western thought.
