Example text

Originally, Bourdieu (1986) distinguishes three basic forms of capital, of which economic capital—like income and property rights—is only the most obvious manifestation. , 2002: 14), can exist in three forms: objectified, institutionalized, and embodied. In its objectified state, cultural capital appears in the form of cultural products like books, art, or machines. Institutionalized cultural capital encompasses academic titles and degrees. The acquisition of embodied cultural capital in the form of long-lasting dispositions of the body and mind consumes time and is personalized.

As a result, four career fields emerge (company world, free-floating professionalism, self-employment, and chronic flexibility). Agents seek to advance within such fields. By crosscutting organizations, occupations, or professions, career fields thus represent the context for making a career. However, both the starting positions and the development possibilities are not the same for all players. More precisely, each and every field is characterized by a fundamental hierarchy which is based on capital distributions (an idea which we will delineate in the section “Concepts of Capital”).

Bourdieu’s sociology is firmly embedded in the late 1950s’ French social science field, which was dominated by tension between the objective structuralism of Levi-Strauss and the subjective existentialism of Sartre (Özbilgin and Tatli, 2005). Within that context, Bourdieu has defined his project as seeking to overcome that binary opposition through a “structuralist constructivism or constructivist structuralism” (Bourdieu and Wacquant, 1992: 11). Grenfell and James 6 Ahu Tatli et al. (1998: 1–2) argue that Bourdieusian sociology presents us with “an epistemological and methodological third way”, establishing “an alternative to the extremes of post-modernist subjectivity and positivist objectivity” of his time.
