Subject: Re: Bourdieu's health

i don't think an interest in B's health is tasteless or ill-considered. 
everyone on this list makes B's ideas and his life their business to
some extent.  He himself would probably urge us to critically evaluate
his theories with the context in which they were formed in mind.

If his health is failing and his work remains unfinished - as it must! -
then this will impact many of our own scholarly trajectories i think.

as to the proposal that we discuss why we care about B's health more
than hundreds of Serbs', I'd say that we care about Bourdieu more than
we care about a lot of people.  the existence of this email list and the
various scholarly projects of members of this list is proof of that.
