      De Certeau’s essay centres on the idea that ordinary people are not merely passive and submissive consumers but active and can manipulate the environments around them through everyday actions. De Certeau divides society into two groups – the producers of culture (or the ruling class) and the users (the ordinary people). He also claims that.   But De Certeau prefers, as his title suggests, walking in the city instead of viewing it. He argues that walking in the city has "its own rhetoric" and with people's limited scope as the move about and write their own course of subjective use of the urban space "the network of these moving, intersecting writings compose and manifold story that has neither author nor spectator".

    A leading intellectual member of France's Freudian school, Michel de Certeau combined principles from the disciplines of religion, history, and psychoanalysis in order to redefine historiography and rethink the categories of history. In The Writing of History, de Certeau examines the West's changing conceptions of the very role and nature of history itself, from the seventeenth-century 4/5(3).

Notes on: De Certeau, M.() The Practice of Everyday Life. By Dave Harris. This is a particularly difficult book to summarize.

It is written in a deliberately poetic style and the argument is very academic, and pretty self referential [that is referring to de Certeau’s contemporaries and to then current debates in French philosophy]. Michel de Certeau, The Practice of Everyday Life (). Strategy and tactics, as the concepts are commonly understood, have their roots in military theory.

The French Jesuit scholar Michel de Certeau, however, drew a distinction between the two terms that leaps. Strategy and tactics are undoubtedly de Certeau's most well known concepts, yet for all their notoriety they remain poorly understood.

Part of the problem rests with de Certeau's own rather too thin formulation of them in the first place, which is suggestive but not nearly as richly argued and exampled as was really needed to make secure their conceptual future.
