Michel Serres

A Critical Introduction

First Edition

Christopher Watkin

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • The first introduction to the full breadth of Michel Serres' works and contributions to important current debates
  • Shows how Serres' work is crucial to the rapidly growing fields of ecocriticism, bio-semiotics and the environmental humanities
  • Explains the key importance of Serres for object-oriented ontology
  • Situates Serres' work as an 'omnicultural' embrace of the sciences and the arts, showing why he is essential reading for the current turn to the medical and scientific humanities
  • Shows how Serres' ideas move beyond current post-humanisms to a new universal humanism
