The Bourdieu Paradigm

Derek Robbins

Manchester University Press

The chapter asks whether Bourdieu prolonged the dilemma of the activist intellectual which Merleau-Ponty had articulated and which derived from the Western tradition indicatively absorbed and reproduced by Schutz and Gurwitsch. It suggests three possible responses to Bourdieu’s work. It prefers a particular response but concludes that the merit of the book is that it provides information to enable readers themselves to assess the value of the Bourdieu paradigm in their socio-cultural contexts.

Keywords:   Merleau-Ponty, oblates, egalitarianism, bamboozling, auto-analysis, public sphere, mass democracy, social media
