Dear Carsten:

Thank you so much for the comments and helpful information. I wish someone
could translate "Propositions pour l'Enseignement de l'Avenir" into English
very soon. I myself can use its Japanese translation. Actually I think it
is a very important text, which might never be showy but seems to be so
constructed that it cannot be reduced to a slogan system. If by trying to
use some symbolic capital of not only Bourdieu but also Foucault, I say,
quoting from Eribon, that the text was originally these two big names
planned to write as a white paper together with  other specialists to make
clear "the logic of the Left"--thought Foucault could not participate in
the work because of his death--then would more people pay even a little
more attention to the text?(See, Didier Eribon, Michel Foucault, Harvard
Univ. Press, 1991, p.307). I don't know.

As far as the notion of the total volume of capital is concerned, it seems
I have to study more of correspondence analysis. I look forward to hearing
you about all of these again.

Best wishes,
