The parasite by Michel Serres ( Book )
26 editions published between 1980 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 648 libraries worldwide
"Influential philosopher Michel Serres's foundational work uses fable to explore how human relations are identical to that of the parasite to the host body. Among Serres's arguments is that by being pests, minor groups can become major players in public dialogue - creating diversity and complexity vital to human life and thought."--Book cover.

Les cinq sens by Michel Serres ( Book )
35 editions published between 1985 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 448 libraries worldwide
The Five Senses represents a defining break in his work, in which he leaves behind traditional philosophy to explore the history and culture of science. By examining the deleterious effects of the systematic downgrading of the senses in Western philosophy, Serres traces a topology of human perception. Writing against the Cartesian tradition and in praise of empiricism, he demonstrates repeatedly, and lyrically, the sterility of systems of knowledge divorced from bodily experience.
Angels, a modern myth by Michel Serres ( Book )
19 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in French and English and held by 426 libraries worldwide
In this new work Michel Serres, France's foremost philosopher of science, explores how traditional images of angels in art and legend foretell the preoccupations of modern life. Divided, as between Heaven and Hell, into First and Third Worlds, our societies search for ways to make contact, both by means of the most basic interpersonal relations and high-tech communications. The role of the messenger, Serres argues, is as important now as it was in Biblical times, perhaps more, and yet we lack a philosophy which can explain this role - a philosophy of movement, of communication. Angels: A Modern Myth offers such a philosophy, showing how angels as message-bearers are still part of our modern world, our means of bringing together and understanding science, law, and religion, and perhaps also the means of satisfying our need for reason, justice, and consolation. Abundantly illustrated with an astounding breadth of images ranging from Renaissance paintings to film stills, satellite photographs, computer microchips, and medical microscopy, this thought-provoking book addresses some of the most crucial issues of our time and will make essential reading for anyone seeking to comprehend the new phase of human development engendered by the transformation of our world by information technology.
