The parasite by Michel Serres( Book )
56 editions published between 1979 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,015 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 )
45 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in French and English and held by 825 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
Genesis by Michel Serres( Book )

Angels, a modern myth by Michel Serres( Book )
39 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 631 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

Les cinq sens by Michel Serres( Book )
70 editions published between 1985 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 477 libraries worldwide
Le nouveau corps confie au sport son souffle, son cœur, la sueur et sa fatigue, ne travaille presque plus de force mais sur des codes ; hygiénique, hydraté, sanitaire et aseptique, rectifié par les remèdes et la prédiction médicale, il repousse la mort de trente ans et l'antique souffrance quasi définitivement. 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 ou repue, verbeuse, rigide et trop vêtue en raison de la honte ou du froid, soumise au labeur et non à l'exercice, à la morale plus qu'à la médecine, dont la philosophie de nos pères a parlé ?--
Hermès by Michel Serres( Book )
46 editions published between 1968 and 1996 in 5 languages and held by 409 libraries worldwide
Variations on the body by Michel Serres( Book )
30 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in French and English and held by 362 libraries worldwide
World-renowned philosopher, Michel Serres writes a text in praise of the body and movement, in praise of teachers of physical education, coaches, mountain guides, athletes, dancers, mimes, clowns, artisans, and artists. This work describes the variations, the admirable metamorphoses that the body can accomplish. While animals lack such a variety of gestures, postures, and movements, the fluidity of the human body mimics the leisure of living beings and things; what's more, it creates signs. Already here, within its movements and metamorphoses, the mind is born. The five senses are not the only

Hermès by Michel Serres( Book )
47 editions published between 1968 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 310 libraries worldwide
"Hermès, dieu des carrefours et chemins, des marchands et des messages, porte des ailes aux chevilles, le caducée à la main ; il vole, il passe, vite, sait les secrets, invente, met en communication. Il a été choisi, voici un quart de siècle, pour emblème d'une philosophie qui ne cesse de parler de lui. A cette époque, pourtant, Prométhée régnait dans les corps et les mains, il occupait les têtes et les langues : la production était au centre et non la communication. Ce fut donc un pari d'annoncer la fin du dieu des forges et le commencement du dieu des transmissions. La philosophie anticipe le savoir et les pratiques à venir, elle doit le montrer. Pari gagné : en vingt-cinq ans, les sciences comme les techniques, l'économie et la vie quotidienne se sont rangées sous le caducée d'Hermès. Ceux qui l'ont compris le plus tôt et le mieux se sont le mieux tirés de la crise. L'annonce faite ici part de tous les points de l'horizon en même temps, sur le pourtour de l'encyclopédie : traduite en mathématique, dite en philosophie, mais aussi dans les langues usuelles, celle des voyages et des cartes, des réseaux, sur le dessin tissé par Pénélope, dans les langues les plus humaines, des sciences humaines, de la critique, des contes, de la comédie et du rire. Hermès fait communiquer les lieux les plus éloignés, les lieux les plus éloignés chantent sa louange. Si la philosophie anticipe, elle ne cesse aussi de travailler à la synthèse des savoirs et des pratiques, de la pensée abstraite et de la vie quotidienne. Voici les premières pierres de la synthèse à venir."

Eclaircissements : cinq entretiens avec Bruno Latour by Michel Serres( Book )
16 editions published between 1991 and 2002 in French and Undetermined and held by 33 libraries worldwide
"L'œuvre de Michel Serres passe parfois pour difficile, ardue, en dépit de sa séduction. Elle est incomprise et critiquée même en raison de sa séduction. D'où ces Eclaircissements; leur but : chercher la compréhension et la limpidité. Quoique proche, Bruno Latour a su ne pas être un interrogateur complaisant. Il pose de vraies questions et ne se satisfait pas des fausses réponses ; il persévère. Voilà donc deux paroles loyales, libres et sans apprêts, un vrai dialogue, entêté à la fois et de bonne volonté. On apprend donc beaucoup sur Michel Serres, sur sa formation intellectuelle (la guerre, les sciences renouvelées), sur ses livres, leurs enjeux, le dessein global d'une œuvre. Comme celle-ci n'est pas ésotérique, mais tournée vers le monde et vers la vie, on apprend beaucoup aussi sur notre monde et notre savoir."--Page 4 of cover
Conversations on science, culture, and time by Michel Serres( Book )
19 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
Although elected to the prestigious French Academy in 1990, Michel Serres has long been considered a maverick -- a provocative thinker whose prolific writings on culture, science, and philosophy have often baffled more than they have enlightened. In these live lively interviews with sociologist Bruno Latour, this increasingly important cultural figure sheds light on the ideas that inspire his highly original, challenging, and trans-disciplinary essays
