A Reply to My Critics: The Critical Spirit of Bourdieusian Language

Susen, S. (2013). A Reply to My Critics: The Critical Spirit of Bourdieusian Language. Social Epistemology, 27(3-4), pp. 323-393. doi: 10.1080/02691728.2013.824646


Drawing on my article “Bourdieusian reflections on language: Unavoidable conditions of the real speech situation”, this paper provides a detailed response to the above commentaries by Lisa Adkins, Bridget Fowler, Michael Grenfell, David Inglis, Hans-Herbert Kögler, Steph Lawler, William Outhwaite, Derek Robbins and Bryan S. Turner. The main purpose of this “Reply to my critics” is to reflect upon the most important issues raised by these commentators and thereby contribute to a more nuanced understanding of key questions arising from Bourdieu’s analysis of language.
