The Bourdieu Paradigm

Derek Robbins

Manchester University Press

The chapter examines in detail the tension in Bourdieu’s thinking between ‘intellectualism’ and ‘practical sense’. It looks at three articles of the late 1970s as a prelude to consideration of his work in the new decade. It examines his analyses of Heidegger and his restatement of his thinking about cultural capital. It examines some of his ‘field’ articles and considers the implications of his appointment to a Chair at the Collège de France and the impact of his encounters with American academics.

Keywords:   Collège de France, dominant ideology, Heidegger, ontology, cultural capital, ‘Fieldwork in Philosophy’, Homo Academicus, conceptual transfer, American encounters, socio-genetic understanding
