Three decades after his passing, the intellectual work of Michel de Certeau is still of much importance for the social sciences and the humanities alike. This is because his concepts and ideas properly compel us towards through processes that mimic his thinking style: An interdisciplinary, heterodox, multiform style. Currently, such qualities are needed for the proper approaching to problems related to agency, and by extension, the human mind, since these qualities will allow understanding of the role the latter have in the experience of everyday life. This was the task started by the Jesuit and the one we will aim to complement by establishing common points between his themes of interest, and studies that were done in a field that shares his thinking qualities as fundamentals for doing research: Cognitive science. Through this exercise, we will achieve a greater intelligibility capacity from both research itineraries towards human phenomena.
