Sample text

The student is able to put together an essay which is apparently written in the same language of ideas, but in which the sentence ‘Descartes renewed epistemology and methodology’ can only be an impressionistic restoration. For outside this sentence, many students associate nothing with the word ‘epistemology’. (p. 15) Pedadogic authoritiy is hence defined and transmitted in language, and is carried in both the projection and reception of language in both form and content. The fact that this goes on in a way that is misrecognized – mistaken for innate talent and ability – makes it all the more powerful.

Such is the basis of the theory of practice which Bourdieu developed, doing so in the face of and in terms of the sorts of theoretical perspectives which surrounded him. Over the course of his work, Bourdieu developed two key concepts which respectively represent the subjectivist and objectivist levels of social activity: habitus and field. Habitus is, of course, a term which can be traced back to Aristotle and beyond and, over the centuries of human thought, has been used in a number of contexts.

All the while, ‘clumsy teachers’ impose their ‘essentialist definitions’, imprisoning individuals as a result. But this ‘imposition’ does not operate in terms of a simple inculcation of knowledge and control. Rather, it is inherent in the practice of cultural transmission: cultural capital, of which linguistic capital is a core component. Moreover, it is not that cultural capital can be taken simply as ‘cultural requisites’ or content. Rather, imposition is expressed in the very forms and relations that culture takes on.
