Example text

In our present context, it is important to realize that this form of subjectivism had no appeal for Bourdieu, who was more concerned with the way that the social, material environment shaped individuals, and what they did as a consequence. In fact, Bourdieu referred to existentialism as an ‘insipid form of humanism’ (1986a: 36). For him, classical philosophy was not much better, out of touch as it seemed to be with real-world problems – Algeria, Education, Béarn, etc. Michel Foucault (1926–1984) (who was of Bourdieu’s generation and, like him, attended both the École Normale Supérieure and was elected to the Collège de France) wrote of the split at the time between a ‘philosophy of experience, of sense and the subject, and a philosophy of knowledge and rationality’(see Pinto, 1998: 21).

For Bourdieu, social space is itself structured, in that it is made up of entities positioned with respect to each other. These positions are often co-terminus with ‘dispositions’ to think and act in certain ways, associated with this positioning, but dispositions which exist in a ‘virtual’ state, that is, ready to be activated in response to particular occurrences within the field (see 2000a/1997: 149). The outcome of this reasoning is that a method is required which can integrate individual (cognitive) structures with social (spatial) structures – or the subjective and the objective; that is, structure as both a modus operandi (and thus generative of thought and action) and an opus operatum (and thus liable to objectification).

(p. 10) Student comprehension thus comes down to a general feeling of familiarity . . technical terms and references, like ‘epistemology’, ‘methodology’, ‘Descartes’, and ‘sciences’, shoulder each other up. He can quite naturally refrain from seeking clarification of each one of these . . for his system of needs is not, cannot be, and up to a point must not be, analytical .
