Pierre Bourdieu

  (Image by Marymartin.com)

Anthropologists, sociologists and philosophers most probably are familiar with the works of David Émile Durkheim (1858-1917) and Pierre Bourdieu (1930-2002).  Although I am not researching in the named disciplines, I have recently cited both Bourdieu’s and Durkheim’s works as I find some of their theories useful in looking at language as a social action. For this post, I will upload Pierre_Bourdieu_and_language_in_society which I found online, written by Professor Blommaert (Tilburg University, Netherlands).
