Review: Beate Krais & Gunter Gebauer (2002). Habitus
Keywords:habitus, economic capital, cultural capital, social capital, class-habitus, gender-habitus, generative principle
AbstractBeate KRAIS and Gunter GEBAUER's book introduces Pierre BOURDIEU's developed concept of habitus in an easily comprehended way. Habitus is the central idea in all of Pierre BOURDIEU's work, in which he attempts to describe and depict the human being as an over-socialized entity. As opposed to the former idea of social role, habitus is to be perceived and understood as a generative principle. This principle involves the (re)production of social structures as well as internalizing and incorporating them. URN: urn:nbn:de:0114-fqs030270
