Sociology in Question by Pierre Bourdieu
  

Synopsis

Sociology in Question by Pierre Bourdieu

The works of Pierre Bourdieu occupy a central place in the current development of world sociology. This volume offers an accessible but challenging introduction to Bourdieu's ideas. In a series of discussions, lectures and interviews, the range of Bourdieu's ideas is laid out and its relation to other disciplines and other sociological schools is explored. The issues developed include the sociology of culture, leisure and taste; the intrinsic reflexivity of social science; and the role of language in society and social sciences.

Reviews

`Bourdieu offers an easy introduction to some ideas and writing that have made a profound impact on general social theory.... Like his other writings, this book shakes the theoretical field of social science at its core. It invites the reader to explore a risky but fundamentally humanistic and optimistic sociology' - Anthropological Quarterly
