Subject: Bourdieu in Frankfurt

At first a short information:
Bourdieu in Frankfurt/Main: 7.6.1997
"Let's talk about Neoliberalism"

And by the way: it was useful, to compare the converted philosopher
(Bourdieu) with the converted philologist (Gramsci), even if they belong to
diverse discourse-galaxies. Indeed, there is a significant difference
between "everyday-rationality" and "common sense" in the prison-notebooks.
The central concept "hegemony" isn't longer a self-evident term in the
discourse of the international Left with the main subject: new spatial
structuration (global area, macro-regions {NAFTA, EG), national-state and
micro-regions {global citys, new industrial districts})in a caustic
polarized way of thinking. The analytical tools of Bourdieu offer a
possibility for the distinction of social progress and modernization of society.
And so on...
