Michel de Certeau

Michel de Certeau (17 May 1925 – 9 January 1986) was a French Jesuit scholar whose work combined history, psychoanalysis, philosophy, and the social sciences. He was known as the philosopher of everyday life and widely regarded as a historian with interests ranging from travelogues of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries to contemporary urban life. His books, in English translation, include The Practice of Everyday Life (1984), The Writing of History (1988), The Practice of Everyday Life Volume two: Living and Cooking (1998), and The Capture of Speech (1998).
