Pierre Bourdieu on capitals, the state and forced resettlement: A review essay
Pierre Bourdieu distinguished two main ways to teach sociology, by either teaching the principles and formal procedures, or by revealing examples of these formal procedures at work, and preferred to harness both together. This essay attempts to adopt this approach to consider three of his books recently translated to English, using my own research on forms of capital, the state and resettlement to engage with his arguments. I suggest that the utilization of Bourdieu’s powerful ideas are limited in areas like social capital and resettlement research by some inconsistencies and lack of definitional clarity.
