The five senses a philosophy of mingled bodies (I) by Michel Serres( )
11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 979 WorldCat member 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
The parasite by Michel Serres( Book )
44 editions published between 1980 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 936 WorldCat member 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

The troubadour of knowledge by Michel Serres( Book )
34 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What do we do when we raise a child, teach a student, or educate a person as a member of society? For the French philosopher Michel Serres, all these forms of pedagogy require painful yet exhilarating departures from home and encounters with otherness. In this wide-ranging meditation on learning and difference, Serres explores numerous pathways in philosophy, science, and literature to argue that the best contemporary education requires knowledge of both science's general truths and literature's singular stories. He heralds a new pedagogy that claims that from the crossbreeding of the humanities and the sciences a new educational ideal can be born: the troubadour of knowledge

Les cinq sens by Michel Serres( Book )
51 editions published between 1985 and 2014 in French and held by 387 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Le nouveau corps confie au sport son souffle, son cœur, sa sueur et ne travaille presque plus de force mais sur des codes; sanitaire et aseptique, rectifié par les remèdes et la prédiction médicale, il repousse la mort de trente ans et l'antique souffrance quasi définitivement; diététique, grignotant des calories du bout des dents, il absorbe ce que ses pères n'auraient pas reconnu pour nourriture ni pour breuvage; nu et libre sur les plages mixtes, le nouveau corps sexuel se reproduit peu et artificiellement parfois; toutes nouveautés contrebalancées par les squelettes ravagés d'épidémies sans recours, se multipliant et mourant par millions vers l'hémisphère Sud, livrés à toutes les horreurs dont nous nous délivrons; comment ces corps si vite changés en moins d'un demi-siècle habiteraient-ils le même monde, sentiraient-ils par les mêmes sens, logeraient-ils la même âme ou une semblable langue que l'ancienne chair accablée de poids et de nécessités, malade, sale, affamée ou repue, verbeuse, soumise au labeur et non à l'exercice, à la morale plus qu'à la médecine, dont la philosophie de nos pères a parlé?

Angels, a modern myth by Michel Serres( Book )
7 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member 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

Qu'est-ce qui change, aujourd'hui, dans le monde? Les sciences, leurs méthodes et leurs inventions, leurs façons de voir et de transformer les choses ; les techniques, donc le travail, son organisation et le lien social qu'il suppose. Comment, donc au bout du compte, se repérer dans le nouveau monde qui se prépare et remplace l'ancien?
Times of crisis : what the financial crisis revealed and how to reinvent our lives and future by Michel Serres( Book )
18 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in French and English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"For Michel Serres, economic crises are earthquakes caused by societal tectonic plates. The current crisis erupted because of the widening discrepancy between major social changes and institutions that have remained the same since WWII. Serres, one of the first to bring nature into the political, writes, "To destroy, kill, exploit is worthless. In the long run, it means destroying ourselves." At a time when the world population has grown so much that it is exhausting natural resources and the environment, we need to rethink cultural, social, and political dynamics. Serres argues that geopolitics and economics will no longer be a two-player game, between West and East, for example, but a three-player one, in which is Earth will be the third partner. This book is one of hope as it calls for a new world and extols the importance of science for our future and political institutions. Here, Serres demonstrates an optimistic outlook in a clear and luminous language that offers new paths for reflection and, ultimately, a better life for Earth and its inhabitants"--

Les origines de la géométrie : tiers livre des fondations by Michel Serres( Book )
29 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Où et quand la science apparaît-elle? En Chine, à Babylone, en Égypte? De par le monde et dans l'histoire, toutes les cultures, peu ou prou, ont tenu des comptes, connu quelques nombres, observé les mouvements du ciel, suivi un calendrier, tenté de soigner les maladies. Une seule inventa de représenter des formes comme le carré, le cercle, la sphère ... et de raisonner sur elles en rigueur. Où et quand cette Géométrie apparut-elle donc? En Grèce, voici vingt-six siècles exactement. Pourquoi? Comment? Il existe si peu de réponses à ces questions que bien des historiens parlent de miracle pour qualifier un événement aussi rare. Que peut-on dire de nouveau sur de tels commencements, extraordinaires et inattendus? Trouver des origines aussi cachées exige de réfléchir, au préalable, sur le temps ; découvrir celles de la Géométrie, de faire voir d'où vient son espace. Écrire, enfin, les débuts de l'histoire des sciences oblige à chercher, pour commencer, une science de l'histoire. Ce livre examine toutes ces questions. Il a demandé trente-cinq ans à son auteur pour en rendre claires les réponses."--Page 4 of cover
