Bourdieu

Bourdieu and his books

We have a boundless fascination for Pierre Bourdieu (1930-2002), the French sociologist, anthropologist and philosopher. We even sleep in pajama’s with his portrait on.

Bourdieu’s work was primarily concerned with the dynamics of power in society, and especially the diverse and subtle ways in which power is transferred and social order maintained within and across generations. In conscious opposition to the idealist tradition of much of Western philosophy, his work often emphasized the corporeal nature of social life and stressed the role of practice and embodiment in social dynamics.

Distinctions is our favorite book, it’s quite a hard nut to crack, but hey we also read every sentence three times.
