Esquisse pour une auto-analyse by Pierre Bourdieu translated into Catalan
Translation into Catalan of Esquisse pour une auto-analyse by Pierre Bourdieu. Publicacions de la Universitat de València, 2008.
Pierre Bourdieu (1930-2002) was one of the great European sociologists and a controversial and committed thinker. Without any ostentation or confessional concession, Pierre Bourdieu makes a contribution to strong and sincere understanding of their field of research and of twentieth century academic France as well as to his own self-understanding. Questions such as the training pathways, the major academic institutions in France, the rituals of joining the intellectual elite, the evolution and uniqueness of sociology in the context of human sciences and philosophy, the sometimes undistinguished performance of some greats, among other things, are discussed perceptively along a few pages that catch our attention until the end.
