Pierre Bourdieu
Pierre Bourdieu [was] a leading French sociologist and maverick intellectual who emerged as a public figure here in the 1990's by championing the antiglobalization movement and other anti-establishment causes.
Bourdieu quotes
Television enjoys a de facto monopoly on what goes into the heads of a significant part of the population and what they think.
Bourdieu
The practical mastery of the logic or of the imminent necessity of a game - a mastery acquired by experience of the game, and one which works outside conscious control and discourse (in the way that. for instance, techniques of the body do).




Bourdieu Pierre quotes
The point of my work is to show that culture and education aren't simply hobbies or minor influences.
Bourdieu Pierre
I often say that sociology is a martial art, a means of self-defense. Basically, you use it to defend yourself, without having the right to use it for unfair attacks.
Pierre Bourdieu quotes
Practice has a logic which is not that of the logician.
Pierre Bourdieu
Pierre Bourdieu, a French sociologist, observed that elites in a society typically maintain their power not simply by controlling the means of production (ie money), but by dominating the cultural discourse too (ie a society’s intellectual map). And what is most important in relation to that cognitive map is not what is overtly stated and discussed – but what is left unstated, or ignored.
Bourdieu Pierre quotes
The mind is a metaphor of the world of objects which is itself but an endless circle of mutually reflecting metaphors.
Bourdieu
Every established order tends to produce (to very different degrees with different means) the naturalization of its own arbitrariness.
