Most widely held works by Marc Augé
Non-places : introduction to an anthropology of supermodernity by Marc Augé( Book )

62 editions published between 1992 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 913 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An ever-increasing proportion of our lives is spent in supermarkets, airports and hotels, on motorways or in front of TVs, computers and cash machines. This invasion of the world by what Marc Augé calls "non-space" results in a profound alteration of awareness: something we perceive, but only in a partial and incoherent manner. Augé uses the concept of "supermodernity" to describe a situation of excessive information and excessive space. In this fascinating essay he seeks to establish an intellectual armature for an anthropology of supermodernity

L'anthropologie est une science sociale du présent, elle s'était donné pour vocation de penser l'altérité alors que l'homogénéisation du monde est en cour
A sense for the other : the timeliness and relevance of anthropology by Marc Augé( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book outlines an approach to anthropology that focuses on negotiating the social meanings we and others use in making sense of the world, and on the processes of identification that create the difference between same and other. Why trace a line of demarcation between societies thought to warrant and require anthropological observation and others (namely, our own) thought to demand a different type of study? Once anthropology, through its study of rites, takes social meaning as its principal object, the necessity for a "generalized anthropology" that includes the entire planet seems obvious, especially in view of the rapid proliferation of new networks of communication and the integration of individuals into those networks
An anthropology for contemporaneous worlds by Marc Augé( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 1999 in English and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Under what conditions is anthropology possible today, when a crisis of social meaning - a crisis that makes it more difficult to conceive and manage our relation to the other - makes the need for anthropology appear more clearly than ever before? This book sets forth at least the beginning of an answer to this question." "Positioned in opposition not only to political theories of universalization and homogenization more or less tied to the theme of "the end of history," but also to "postmodernist" versions of anthropological theories of multiplicity and relativism, the author argues that social anthropology, through its self-critical tradition, is fully capable of adapting to the accelerated change that is continuously recomposing relations between universalism and particularism. It is for social anthropology to select, analyze, and understand the new modes of sociality and the new spaces in which (not without calamities and contradictions) these utterly new recompositions, a major aspect of our contemporary world, manifest themselves."--Jacket

Non-places : introduction to an anthropology of supermodernity by Marc Augé( Book )

19 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Shopping malls, motorways, airport lounges - we are all familiar with these curious spaces which are both everywhere and nowhere. But only now do we have a coherent analysis of their far-reaching effects on public and private experience. Marc Auge has become their anthropologist, and has written a timely and original book." "An ever-increasing proportion of our lives is spent in supermarkets, airports and hotels, on motorways or in front of TVs, computers and cash machines. This invasion of the world by what Marc Auge calls "non-space" results in a profound alteration of awareness: something we perceive, but only in a partial and incoherent manner. Auge uses the concept of "supermodernity" to describe a situation of excessive information and excessive space. In this fascinating essay he seeks to establish an intellectual armature for an anthropology of supermodernity."--Jacket

This book is based on collective research carried out during the 1980s. This edition appears ten years after the original publication in French. Since then we have experienced many changes.

The reader today will be sensitive to these changes and this research maintains its value as an intellectual endeavour and a useful model

L'ogre historien : autour de Jacques Le Goff( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in French and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le bon historien ressemble à l'ogre de légende, disait Marc Bloch. Là où il flaire la chair humaine, il sait que là est son gibier." Jacques Le Goff n'a guère eu à forcer son talent pour se glisser à son tour dans la peau de l'ogre. La métaphore illustre l'énergie physique et intellectuelle, la force de travail de l'historien
Les formes de l'oubli by Marc Augé( Book )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

L'oubli est nécessaire à la société comme à l'individu. Il faut savoir oublier pour goûter la saveur du présent, de l'instant et de l'attente, mais la mémoire elle-même a besoin de l'oubli : il faut oublier le passé récent pour retrouver le passé ancien. Tel est l'argument de ce petit traité, écrit par un ethnologue à partir de ses propres souvenirs de terrain

Everyone dies young : time without age by Marc Augé( Book )

4 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are awash in time, savoring a few moments of it; we project ourselves into it, reinvent it, play with it; we take our time or let it slip away: it is the raw material of our imagination. Age, on the other hand, is the detailed account of the days that pass, the one-way view of the years whose total sum when set forth can stupefy us. Age wedges each of us between a date of birth that, at least in the West, we know for certain and an expiration date that, as a general rule, we would like to defer. Time is a freedom, age a constraint. Marc AugE remembers his beloved childhood cat, who seemed to grow wise with age, though her essential nature remained unchanged. He considers our belief that objects mature, when it is our perception of them that evolves over time. He wonders why public demonstrations of affection between the elderly make the young so uncomfortable and why we torture ourselves with regret at what might have been. Time can be liberating, he finds; it is a resource we can squander or relish. Yet age is a burden, bound up in our personal and cultural neuroses. With an ethnologist's understanding of construct and practice, AugE proves age is unrelated to the development of consciousness, desire, and representations of the self. In bold, eye-opening strokes, he isolates age as a physical marker and casts one's youthful approach to the world as the true measure of life's value
