From the seventeenth-century attempts to formulate a "history of man" to Freud's Moses and Monotheism, de Certeau examines the West's changing conceptions of the role and nature of history.
Michel de Certeau taught at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes in Paris and at the University of California, San Diego, where he was also chairman of the literature department. He authored over a dozen books, including The Mystical Fable, Heterologies: Discourses on the Other, and The Practice of Everyday Life. Tom Conley, Professor of French and Italian at the University of Minnesota, is the author of Film Hieroglyphics and The Graphic Unconscious. He has also translated Gilles Deleuze's The Fold: Leibniz and the Baroque.
Erudite in the extreme... Brilliant and rewarding. Voice Literary Supplement The crowing work of the late Michel de Certeau is this volume of essays on historiography... Tom Conley has now translated the text into English, with lovely fidelity to de Certeau's mellifluous Gallic idiom. The book is a brilliant, disjointed, baffling work, brimming with complex metaphors, Franco-German metaphysics and a post-modern sensibility. American Historical Review Although he has not yet gained the international reputation of a Foucault, a Bourdieu or a Derrida, the late Michel de Certeau was in their class as a thinker and and his spectrum of interests was even wider than theirs, ranging from theology, sociology, and anthropology.
