bourdieu

 By Howard Richards


Pierre Bourdieu is a problem.  He continues to be a problem even though since January 23, 2002, he is no longer alive.  He is a problem because he has great prestige and he gives some bad advice.  ATTAC, an organization he co-founded, continues to be a forum where his views carry great weight.  The publisher of the Chilean edition of Le Monde Diplomatique, a periodical to which he frequently contributed, has reprinted a collection of his writings on political and social issues that includes:  “The Essence of Neoliberalism,”  “For Committed Science,”  “Give Social Meaning to the European Union,” “The Architect of the Euro Confesses,”  “A New Planetary Vulgate,” and “Masculine Domination.”  I will be commenting mainly on these.
