Quote of the Month: October 2017 - Pierre Bourdieu

Quote of the Month (10/17):

“To subject to scrutiny the mechanisms which render life painful, even untenable, is not to neutralize them; to bring to light contradictions is not to resolve them. But, as skeptical as one might be about the efficacy of the sociological message, we cannot dismiss the effect it can have by allowing sufferers to discover the possible social causes of their suffering and, thus, to be relieved of blame.”

Pierre Bourdieu

French Sociological Theorist
