The five senses a philosophy of mingled bodies (I) by Michel Serres ( )
3 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 735 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 )
9 editions published between 1982 and 2008 in English and held by 517 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 )
7 editions published between 1997 and 2009 in English and held by 398 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 )
46 editions published between 1985 and 2006 in French and held by 382 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 308 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

La légende des anges by Michel Serres ( Book )
21 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in French and German and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
De nos jours, comme dans les anciennes légendes, l'ange porte les messages. Or, nos sciences et nos techniques produisent cent métiers de communication, autant de réseaux mondiaux, une ville sans limite, d'incessants déplacements qui dessinent la carte d'un nouvel univers et induisent des problèmes planétaires, portés sans cesse vers nous par mille messagers (selon l'éditeur). Doit-on alors "penser notre planète comme une immense messagerie?" (M. Serres). Un ouvrage polyphonique, dialogué, assez didactique, riche d'intuitions, magnifiquement illustré, qui constitue une "étrange méditation parlée sur les réseaux du monde". Et comme l'ajoute P. Drouin "des fulgurances viennent rompre le ronronnement d'une prose poétique trop ailée"
Le parasite by Michel Serres ( Book )
14 editions published between 1980 and 1997 in French and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Qui mange à table d'hôte, invité gourmand, parfois beau causeur est dit parasite. La bête petite qui vit de son hôte, qui change son état courant et le met en risque de mort, est dite, encore parasite. Le bruit qui interrompt sans cesse nos dialogues ou intercepte nos messages, voici toujours le parasite. Pourquoi nomme d'un même mot un homme, une bête et une onde ? Voici un livre d'images d'abord comme réponse à la question, une galerie de portraits. Il faudra un peu deviner qui se dissimule sous les plumes et sous les poils, et sous l'accoutrement du fabuleux. Des animaux, grands et petits, mangent ensemble, leur festin est interrompu. Comment ? Par qui ? Pourquoi ? Sortent les animaux, les repas continuent. Nous mangerons avec Jean-Jacques, avec Tartuffe, avec Socrate, avec les frères de Joseph... Le parasite prend et ne donne rien : des mots, des bruits, du vent. L'hôte donne et ne reçoit rien. Voici la fléche simple, irréversible, sans retour, elle vole entre nous, c'est l'atome de la relation et c'est l'angle du changement. Abus avant l'usage et vol avant l'échange. On peut construire, à partir d'elle, ou repenser au moins, techniques et travaux, économie et société."--P. [4] of cover
