October Uprisings in Chile and Lebanon

Pablo Abufom, Gilbert Achcar | Jacobin Radio


What can we learn from Pierre Bourdieu’s critique of Marxism? Why did the influential French sociologist reject Marx’s emphasis on labor and class struggle? Michael Burawoy [1] lays out Bourdieu’s famous troika of interrelated concepts: habitus, field, and capital. He also points out some of the key differences between how Bourdieu and Marx thought about politics, culture, and domination.
