Item description for The Certeau Reader (Blackwell Readers) by Ward...
This reader brings together an authoritative selection of key Certeau texts. The selection reflects the breadth of Certeau's work which ranges from history, anthropology and philosophy through to semiotics, sociology and psychology. An introduction by Graham Ward outlines Certeau's biography and places his work within the cultural context of his time, both in terms of French Catholicism and contemporary intellectual debates. It examines the major preoccupations of his work - with the Other, with spatiality, with colonialism in its various forms, with the body, with discourse and oppression - and locates them within the overall development of Certeau's thinking. Finally, Ward discusses the impact of Certeau's work and comments on the rediscovery of his potential. Each major section of Certeau's oeuvre is introduced by an essay from a leading specialist in the field - Girard, Buchanan, Ahearne, Conley and Ward himself. These essays also comment on the importance of Certeau for the different intellectual disciplines represented.
