Summary: In this work, Pierre Bourdieu develops a critique of scholastic reason, making explicit the presuppositions entailed by the situation of ekbole of free time, liberated from the exigencies of the world, that makes possible a free and liberated relation to the world." "This critique is made in the name of Pascal because his thought expressed the features of human existence which the scholastic outlook ignores - his concern with power, custom, contingency and
probability, his rejection of the search for foundations and his call for the kind of symbolic revolution which the social sciences must carry out in order to free themselves from the presuppositions of scholastic thought." "Through this Pascalian critique of scholarly reason, Bourdieu charts a negative philosophy which calls into question our most fundamental assumptions - such as that of a 'subject' which is free and transparent to itself - and which opens the way for a renewal of the social sciences and a reappraisal of the relation between the social sciences and politics." "This work will be essential reading for students of sociology, anthropology and the social sciences and humanities generally.
