Revisiting field-theory. On taking Bourdieu to envisioned futures
Title of the book
Re-thinking economics: Exploring the work of Pierre Bourdieu
Christoforou A., Laine M.
Pierre Bourdieu's field theory is a strong account of how human action can be understood based on the principle that negotiates between structural, relational, and cognitive dimensions within the social world. With his central notion of fields, Bourdieu provides social scientists and economists, a way to transcend the dichotomies that shape theoretical thinking about human conduct and its innovative potentials. This chapter is dedicated to locate the position of the notion of field with respect to major schools of thought, and in particular to the embeddedness tradition that addresses similar questions on the social structuring of human behavior.
