MENDIOLA, Alfonso. Michel de Certeau: Heterological Sciences as a Theory of Belief. Hist. graf [online]. 2013, n.40, pp.133-161. ISSN 1405-0927.

This essay analyzes the concept of belief in the work of Michel de Certeau, a notion that "comes to be" within the margins of two problemata: the question about the birth of the human sciences and the discredit of the institutions that came about in France in May of '68. "Belief" -in it's conceptual entirety- becomes the explanation for the process of cultural transmission from one generation to the next.

Keywords : Michel de Certeau; Michel Foucault; belief; heterology; human sciences.
