  • Bourdieu
    • HABITUS
      • infinite capacity for generating products...
      • It adjusts itself to a probably future which it anticipates
      • Internal law
      • Active presence of the whole past of which it is the product
      • The relation to the body is a fundamental dimension of the habitus that is inseperate from a relation to language and time.
      • objects of knowledge are constructed.
      • =practical functions
      • Durkheim - past selves - they consitute the unconscious part of themselves
    • Body
      • The relation to the body is a fundamental dimension of the habitus that is inseperate from a relation to language and time.
      • practical sense is a quasi bodily involvement in the world
      • The body both in tis posture and movement and the appreciation of its posture and movement is the site of the internalisation of the external structures of society
    • Class
      • One cannot enter this magic circle by an insantaneous decision of the will, but only by birth or a slow process of co-option and initiation which is equivalent to birth
      • How do symbolic logics live?
        • How do these symbolic logics relate to social relations? create inequality?
      • Social mobility? How do we stay in our own class?
      • Working simultaneously within/challenging the notion of class
      • Cultural capital unequally distributed
    • Reflexivity
      • to bring to light the theory of practice which theoretical knowledge implicitly applies and so to make possible a truly scientific knowledge of practice and of prctical node of knowledge.
        • Social science must break with native experience and the native representation of that experience
          • the 'objective observer' who, seeking to interpret practices, affects the by not realising his relation to the object.
            • an adequate model must think about the 'objective observer' and the model which enables the mechanisms it describes tofunction with the unknowing complicity of agents
