In 'Distinction', Pierre Bourdieu brilliantly illuminates the social pretentions of the middle classes in the modern world. Focusing on the French bourgeoisie - its tastes and preferences - 'Distinction' is at once a vast ethnography of contemporary France and a dissection of the bourgeois mind
The weight of the world : social suffering in contemporary society by Pierre Bourdieu ( Book )
69 editions published between 1993 and 2010 in 4 languages and held by 1,487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Confined to their governmental ivory towers, and with their eyes fixed on the opinion polls, politicians and state officials are all too often oblivious to the lives of their citizens. On the other hand, the ordinary men and women who have so much hardship in their lives, and so few means to make themselves heard, either protest outside the official frameworks or remain locked in the silence of their despair. Under the direction of Pierre Bourdieu, a team of sociologists spent three years analysing the new forms of social suffering that characterize contemporary societies - the suffering of those who are denied the means of acquiring a socially dignified existence, as well as the suffering of those who are poorly adjusted to the rapidly changing condition of their lives. Declining housing estates, the school, the family, street-level state services, the everyday world of social workers and policemen, factory workers and white-collar clerks, the universe of farmers and artisans, of teachers and the unemployed and partly employed: these are just some of the spaces where conflict occurs, where specific discriminations and recriminations, tensions and contradictions abound and accumulate, and where new forms of suffering are produced. This book can be read like a series of short stories - the story of a steelworker who was laid off after twenty years in the same factory and who now struggles to support his family on unemployment benefits and a part-time job; the story of a trade unionist who finds his goals undermined by the changing nature of work; the story of a family from Algeria living on a housing estate on the outskirts of Paris whose members have to cope with pervasive, everyday forms of racism; the story of a schoolteacher confronted with urban violence; and many others as well."--Book cover

The craft of sociology : epistemological preliminaries by Pierre Bourdieu ( Book )
106 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 1,126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
La sociología del conocimiento constituye un instrumento particularmente eficaz de control epistemológico de la práctica sociológica. Sin embargo, hay que alejar la esperanza utópica de esperar escapar a la relativización con un esfuerzo, necesariamente estéril, por desprenderse de todas las determinaciones que caracterizan su situación social, e ser 'intelectuales sin ataduras ni raíces' de liberarse de las ideologías que inciden en la inestigación, por la sola virtud de reformar decisivamente un juicio -que está socialmente condicionado- mediante un 'auto-socioanálisis'
Sociology in question by Pierre Bourdieu ( )
18 editions published between 1992 and 2000 in English and held by 1,113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The inheritors : French students and their relation to culture by Pierre Bourdieu ( Book )
71 editions published between 1964 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 1,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Si l'école aime à proclamer sa fonction d'instrument démocratique de la mobilité sociale, elle a aussi pour fonction de légitimer - et donc, dans une certaine mesure, de perpétuer - les inégalités de chances devant la culture en transmuant par les critères de jugement qu'elle emploie, les privilèges socialement conditionnés en mérites ou en " dons " personnels. A partir des statistiques qui mesurent l'inégalité des chances d'accès à l'enseignement supérieur selon l'origine sociale et le sexe et en s'appuyant sur l'étude empirique des attitudes des étudiants et des professeurs ainsi que sur l'analyse des règles -souvent non écrites - du jeu universitaire, on peut mettre en évidence, par-delà l'influence des inégalités économiques, le rôle de l'héritage culturel, capital subtil fait de savoirs de savoir-faire et de savoir-dire, que les enfants des classes favorisées doivent à leur milieu familial et qui constitue un patrimoine d'autant plus rentable que professeurs et étudiants répugnent à le percevoir comme un produit social. -- Back cover

The field of cultural production : essays on art and literature by Pierre Bourdieu ( Book )
39 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 899 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Field of Cultural Production brings together Bourdieu's most important writings on art, literature, and aesthetics." "Bourdieu develops a highly original approach to the study of literary and artistic works, addressing many of the key issues that have preoccupied literary, art, and cultural criticism in the late twentieth century: aesthetic value and judgement, the social contexts of cultural practice, the role of intellectuals and artists, and the structures of literary and artistic authority." "Bourdieu elaborates a theory of the cultural field which situates artistic works within the social conditions of their production, circulation, and consumption. He examines the individuals and institutions involved in making cultural products what they are: the writers, artists, publishers, critics, dealers, galleries and academies. He analyses the structure of the cultural field itself as well as its position within the broader social structures of power." "The essays in this volume deal with such diverse topics as Flaubert's point of view, Manet's aesthetic revolution, the historical creation of the pure gaze, and the relationship between art and power." "The Field of Cultural Production will be of interest to students and scholars from a wide range of disciplines: sociology and social theory, literature, art, and cultural studies."--Jacket

On television by Pierre Bourdieu ( Book )
11 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and held by 769 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"On Television exposes the invisible mechanisms of manipulation and censorship that determine what appears on the small screen. Bourdieu shows how the ratings game has transformed journalism - and hence politics - and even such seemingly removed fields as law, science, art, and philosophy." "Bourdieu had long been concerned with the role of television in cultural and political life when he bypassed the political and commercial control of the television networks and addressed his country's viewers from the television station of the College de France. On Television, which expands on that lecture, not only describes the limiting and distorting effect of television on journalism and the world of ideas, but offers the blueprint for a counterattack."--Jacket

La reproduction éléments pour une théorie du système d'enseignement by Pierre Bourdieu ( Book )
69 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in 6 languages and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Cet ouvrage présente la synthèse théorique de recherches dont le livre Les héritiers, en 1964, marquait la première étape. A partir de travaux empiriques sur le rapport pédagogique, sur l'usage lettré ou mondain de la langue et de la culture universitaires et sur les effets économiques et symboliques de l'examen et du diplôme, se construit une théorie générale des actions de violence symbolique et des conditions sociales de la dissimulation de cette violence. En explicitant les conditions sociales du rapport d'imposition symbolique, cette théorie définit les limites méthodologiques des analyses qui, sous l'influence cumulée de la linguistique, de la cybernétique et de la psychanalyse, tendent à réduire les rapports sociaux à de purs rapports symboliques. L'Ecole produit des illusions dont les effets sont loin d'être illusoires : ainsi, l'illusion de l'indépendance et de la neutralité scolaires est au principe de la contribution la plus spécifique que l'Ecole apporte à la reproduction de l'ordre établi. Par suite, essayer de mettre au jour les lois selon lesquelles elle reproduit la structure de la distribution du capital culturel, c'est non seulement se donner le moyen de comprendre complètement les contradictions qui affectent aujourd'hui les systèmes d'enseignement, mais encore contribuer à une théorie de la pratique qui, constituant les agents comme produits des structures, reproducteurs des structures, échappe aussi bien au subjectivisme de la liberté créatrice qu'à l'objectivisme pan-structuraliste. -- Back cover
