Subject: Habitus and reproduction...


Hello Listserve members,

I'm trying to better understand how habitus is reproduced.  

I understand that conditions for change, rather than reproduction, are set
up when habitus encounters objective structures radically different from
those under which it was originally formed (Swartz, 1997: 113)

However this doesn't explain how habitus is perpetuated.  Is it a result
of the struggles between fields?  An inertia that results?

Thank you.

Sincerely,


Gavin Young
NYC
