Sheldrake, P. (2001) 'Unending desire : De Certeau's 'mystics'.', Way supplement., 102 . pp. 38-48.
The writings of Michel de Certeau on mysticism are interdisciplinary, original and tantalizing. They draw on disciplines ranging from history, theology and spirituality to psychoanalysis, semiotics and cultural theory. While de Certeau concentrated on sixteenth and seventeenth-century French and Spanish spiritualities with their emphasis on 'spiritual experience', one of his most controversial views was that mysti¬cism is not purely a matter of interiority but is a form of disruptive 'social practice'.
