Bourdieu, Language and Linguistics PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Bourdieu, Language and Linguistics free pdf Pierre Bourdieu is regarded as one of the foremost social philosophers of the twentieth century. His output included extensive studies of education, culture, art and language. He went beyond being a sociologist to being regarded in the same 'public intellectual' role as Sartre, de Beauvoir and Foucault. Issues surrounding language permeate Bourdieu's entire oeuvre. Although he did undertake empirical studies on language in a range of contexts, very little of this was published. This book redresses this balance- it sets out what Bourdieu has to say about language and why, and exemplifies this approach through a series of empirical language studies. This book will appeal to researchers across the world in fields such as sociology, philosophy,cultural studies, anthropologybut is of especial interest to language and linguistics scholars.
