Synopsis:

In this first comprehensive and systematic study of Pierre BourdieuAEs theory of culture and habitus, Bridget Fowler examines the intellectual context of BourdieuAEs work, while providing an exacting and systematic reading of the development of his thinking on cultural capital. Pierre Bourdieu and Cultural Theory outlines the key critical debates that inform BourdieuAEs work: the role of Lukcs and Goldmann, BenjaminAEs discussion of the sacred and the secular; and HabermasAEs examination of communication. Fowler goes on to provide a lexicon of BourdieuAEs thought in cultural theory, explaining the importance of capitalueconomic and social, symbolic, and culturaluas well as outlining the importance of key terms like habitus, practice and strategy, legitimate culture, and consumer society, in the context of BourdieuAEs analysis of capitalism and modernity. There is also substantive analysis of BourdieuAEs work on contemporary culture. This critical examination concludes with a discussion of the state and education as exemplified in BourdieuAEs latest work. Comprehensive, critical, and rigorous, this is the definitive guide to the changing contours of BourdieuAEs cultural theory. It will be the essential reference for students of sociology, cultural studies, and social theory.
