Michel de Certeau

Since his death in 1986, Michel de Certeau's reputation as athinker has steadily grown both in France and throughout theEnglish-speaking world. His work is extraordinarily innovative andwide-ranging, cutting across issues in historiography, literary andcultural studies, anthropology, sociology, theology, philosophy andpsychoanalysis. This book represents the first full-length study of Certeau'sthought. It is organized around the central theme of interpretationand alterity, which Ahearne uses to illuminate Certeau's work as awhole. The author also examines Certeau's theory and practice ofhistoriography; his reflection on the relations between changinghistorical forms of writing, reading and orality; and hisdistinction between the 'strategic' programmes of the politicallypowerful and the 'tactics' of the relatively powerless. Ahearne places Certeau's work in its general intellectual context,relating it to the views of important contemporary thinkers, suchas Pierre Bourdieu and Michel Foucault, and demonstrating thedecisive importance to Certeau's thought of the writings of theearly modern mystics and travellers. This book constitutes an excellent critical introduction toCerteau's work, while also providing a comprehensive and nuancedreading for those already familiar with his thought. Dr. Jeremy Ahearne, University of Warwick
