Sociology Is a Martial Art

French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, who died in 2002 at age 71, was renowned in Europe for his critiques of “neoliberalism”—the alliance between corporate multinationals and accommodating governments. This worshipful 2001 video documentary by Pierre Carles captures him in action—at academic conferences, on a radio call-in show—expounding on his views at length and dazzling younger colleagues with rhetoric. Less playful than Kirby Dick and Amy Kofman's recent portrait of Jacques Derrida, this program reveals little of the private man. In French with subtitles. 146 min.
