Relating to Bourdieu: Pierre Felix Bourdieu (1 August 1930–23 January 2002), a French sociologist, anthropologist, philosopher, and public intellectual.Bourdieu's work was primarily concerned with the dynamics of power in society, and especially the diverse and subtle ways in which power is transferred and social order maintained within and across generations. In conscious opposition to the idealist tradition of much of Western philosophy, his work often emphasised the corporeal nature of social life and stressed the role of practice and embodiment in social dynamics.
