In this article, Pierre Bourdieu elaborates the notion of class that underlies his sociologyical investigations since Distinction. The theory of social class must transcend the opposition between objectivist theories which identify classes with discrete groups objectively inscribed in reality, and subjectivist theories which reduce the "social orde...

In this short but dense piece, written for a special issue of the journal L'Arc devoted to the medieval historian Feorges Duby (whose sprawling oeuvre Bourdieu admired and drew on for its scrupulous genealogy of the mental-cum-social structure of the feudal triad of knight, priest, and peasant: see Georges Duby, The Three Orders (1982 [1978]), Bour...

One of the most original contributions to the anthropology of immigration of the past century, the work of the late Adelmalek Sayad demonstrates the potency of three principles for the study of peregrination. The first insists that, before becoming an immigrant, the migrant is first an e-migrant and that the sociology of migration must therefore st...

Over the last three decades, the French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu has produced one of the most imaginative and subtle bodies of social theory and research of the post war era. Yet, despite the influence of his work, no single introduction to his wide-ranging oeuvre is available. This book, intended for an English-speaking audience, offers a syste...

Tenter de penser l'Etat, c'est courir le risque d'appliquer des categories de pensee produites par l'Etat lui-meme et de meconnaitre sa verite profonde. Pour etayer sa proposition, l'A. tente de montrer les limites de l'independance des sciences sociales vis-a-vis de l'Etat. Puis il decrit celui-ci comme lieu de concentration de quatre types de cap...

... The concept of a bounded field of practice is based on the methodological lens developed by French sociologist Bourdieu (2005) in his individual research and his research with Passeron (Bourdieu & Passeron, 2016) and Wacquant (Bourdieu & Wacquant, 1998). Each field has its own set of rules, practices and knowledge. ...
... There may also be feedback effects between describing a social phenomenon and the social phenomenon itself. These latter feedback effects arise from the inseparability of the subject and object of study 11,52 . ...
... The critique raised in the previous paragraph highlights a need in natural resource management research to reflect upon our own motivations, biases, and even emotional experiences as scholars (Bourdieu 1992;Patton 2015;Townsend and Cushion 2020). This practice of reflexivity -conducting systematic and in-depth self-reflection as scholars-was developed in qualitative research, but is broadly applicable (Brittain et al. 2020). ...
... Social capital is broadly recognized as the sum of resources, actual or virtual, that accrue to an individual or group by virtue of membership to social structures such as communities or personal social networks (Bourdieu, 1989;Bourdieu & Wacquant, 1992 have argued that social capital should be treated strictly as a more social-relational concept that 34 results as a function of individual membership in personal social networks rather than a macroecological feature of larger aggregate groups (Foley & Edwards, 1997). ...
... The linguistic behavior of each and every individual is controlled by the society (Snell, 2014). As per Bourdieu and Wacquant (2013), the materialized belongings work as an ancient form of language, which represents ourselves more than we represent it. ...
... As an unconscious product of socialization, the individual's habitus reflects a shared cultural context, i.e. cultural capital that, among other things, may enable tolerant attitudes toward "others" including the capacity to comprehend alternative interpretative frameworks (cf. Bourdieu and Wacquant 1999). On these grounds, a form of cultural capital relevant for immigration attitudes could be reading habits. ...
... Özkırımlı (2005) defined nationalism as a particular way of interpreting the world. In a similar vein, nation-building can be defined as a process whereby the inhabitants of a state's territory come to be loyal citizens of the state (Bloom, 1990). ...
... Interestingly, between the 1945 -1989 Republic of Poland was a satellite country of the Soviet Union, with the juridical system subjected to the political decisions of the ruling party (Kühn 2004). Pierre Bourdieu twisted famous Hegel's expression and expressed the state's power to pass a verdict in a quote: "the judgement of the state is the last judgement" (Bourdieu and Farage 1994). Hence, the ability to influence the court's judgments via informal practices may provide additional social capital required to protect scientific authority despite misconduct allegations. ...
... objective ? (Bourdieu, 1980b;Bourdieu et Wacquant, 1992). C'est cette int?riorisation des dispositions qui porte vers la g?n?ralisation des r?actions des agents d'un champ donn?, dans dif- f?rentes situations v?cues dans ce m?me champ. ...
... Destacam-se como mais numerosos os que acreditam na inevitabilidade e irreversibilidade da globalização, assumindo que as suas causas seriam também inevitáveis e irreversíveis. Em contraponto, estão os que defendem que "a 'globalização' não é [seja] uma nova fase do capitalismo, mas uma retórica 'invocada' pelos governos para justificar sua submissão voluntária aos mercados financeiros" (Bourdieu & Wacquant 2000). Fugindo um pouco a essas perspectivas, conhecidas por adotarem uma postura uniescalar, a corrente do desenvolvimento territorial defende a combinação das múltiplas escalas -conformando o que se convencionou chamar de estratégia transescalar. ...
