Bourdieusian Prospects (Hardcover)
About this item
Bourdieusian Prospects contributes to scholarship on the social theory of Pierre Bourdieu. Breaking with the tendency to reflect on Bourdieu's legacies, it brings established and emergent scholars together to debate the futures of a specifically Bourdieusian sociology. Driven by a central leitmotif in Bourdieu’s oeuvre, namely, that his work not be blindly appropriated, but actively interpreted, contributors to this volume set out to map the potentials of Bourdieusian sociology. In so doing the volume brings Bourdieu's work into direct dialogue with key ideas in the contemporary social sciences, including those associated with actor network theory, process philosophy, the French pragmatic school and the new materialism.Bourdieusian Prospects thus sets new terms for the ongoing relevance of and prospects for a Bourdieusian inflected social science.
