I first met Pierre Bourdieu in 1981 – an account of this encounter is posted here. As a result, I ended up going to Paris on repeated occasions – three times as visiting scholar – where I pursued my study of him and contemporary French philosophy. I have written an (almost embarrassing) amount about Bourdieu, as well applied his ideas to various topics – art, philosophy, literature, music, economics, etc. There is a selection of this work here.
