(p.1) Introduction
The Bourdieu Paradigm

Derek Robbins

Manchester University Press

The chapter outlines the scope of the book, indicating that it reflects generally on the function of intellectual tradition in shaping empirical research through detailed consideration of the development of the work of Bourdieu in relation to some phenomenological antecedents. It offers brief summaries of the philosophical terminology used in the book as well as a specific brief sketch of the meaning and implications of phenomenology. It offers a note on the method adopted in its presentation, mentions some disclaimers in terms of the inherent limitations of its analysis, and invites a particular response from readers to the ‘paradigm’ which it offers.

Keywords:   cross-cultural conceptual transfer, phenomenology, philosophical preliminaries, social function of intellectuals, engagement
