AUTHOR

De Certeau, Michel, Conley, Tom

SUMMARY

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 Monotheismwith 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 Historyis a crucial introduction to de Certeau's work and is destined to become a classic of modern thought.De Certeau, Michel is the author of 'Writing of History', published 1992 under ISBN 9780231055758 and ISBN 0231055757.
