To Understand: An Early Heidegerian Motive in the Late Bourdieu

Summary/Abstract: The article presents the reflexive sociology of the late Pierre Bourdieu as a hermeneutically founded program. The argumentation is deployed through a ‘close-up view’ of the research perspective of Bourdieu in the collective monograph The Misery of the World. Testimonies and diagnoses of everyday suffering from society (1993). The new moments in field analysis, related to the attention to the microcosm of the place and leading to the concept of ‘positionally determined suffering’, have their reflexive counterpart in the unexpected, almost scandalous to sociological orthodoxy, appearance of the Heideggerian theme of ‘authentic understanding’. By an explication of this motive, the problem of the two modalities of sociological understanding is rendered more acute: on the one hand, the exogenous (‘necessitating’) understanding, as an understanding from the ‘ontological complicity’ between habitus and field, and on the other hand, the endogenous (‘maieutical’) understanding, as an understanding from the hermeneitucal complicity in the mastering of a situation.
