By Pierre Bourdieu

Over the prior 4 many years, French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu produced the most innovative and sophisticated our bodies of social thought of the postwar period. whilst he died in 2002, he used to be thought of to be the main influential sociologist on the planet and a philosopher on a par with Foucault and Lévi-Strauss—a public highbrow as very important to his iteration as Sartre was once to his.
Sketch for a Self-Analysis is the final word consequence of Bourdieu’s lifelong preoccupation with reflexivity. Vehemently now not an autobiography, this distinctive publication is as an alternative an software of Bourdieu’s theories to his personal lifestyles and highbrow trajectory; alongside how it bargains compelling and intimate insights into an important French intellectuals of the time—including Foucault, Sartre, Aron, Althusser, and de Beauvoir—as good as Bourdieu’s personal formative reviews at boarding university and his ethical outrage on the colonial warfare in Algeria.
