To this day I have not been able to get myself a copy. Remains sold out in most bookstores. So, to save temporarily this lack of the additional resource recommended, what I have done is to search and collect from the Network a number of texts and other materials for which we have not had the opportunity to read it yet, we can get an idea of the text Bourdieu.
The distinction of Bourdieu is one of the most important works of sociology according to many sociologists. The Distinction is one of the greatest approaches of sociology to the social psychology of recent times, by the object of study, the method and the look that is impregnated in the voter to understand the phenomena of society at the most basic level of interaction, namely, the daily life.
Consumption, leisure, art… all of these levels of interaction in daily life, can be explained by one thing that is very obvious but not insignificant, namely, the taste. The taste limits our preferences, our attitudes, ideas, actions, but, what is it that constrains and shapes our taste?. In principle we could say that the taste belongs to an abstract order that conforms to our standards and dispositions toward things, and that in this order, are defined the different relationships and even antagonistic to the culture, according to the conditions in which we have acquired our cultural capital and the markets in which we can get from him, a greater benefit p.
This order to which Bourdieu refers is nothing other than the habitus. The habitus is both the generative principle of practices objectively enclasables and the system of enclasamiento of these practices p. These styles of life, are products of the habitus which become in systems of socially classified.
That is to say, can be seen as those everyday practices that make up a style of life correspond with a habitus determined high class, of the petty bourgeoisie, etc. A key element in defining the habitus of a social class is the principal of the school. From this we can say, that establishes some knowledge or practices as outside the school system as the disposition towards the arts music, painting… in such a way that the tastes of a particular grade of schooling of the match being this negative relationship in terms of the artistic representations legitimate.
There is, in the words of Bourdieu, is nothing more enclasante that works of art are legitimate which allow for the production of distinction to the infinite. Bourdieu proposes a differentiation of classes, paying attention not only to the properties or relations of production but to the way in which these properties in relation to make up a habitus of a particular class and how it is supported by the practices of which it is product.
Bourdieu proposes a differentiation of the habitus depending on the social class, finding in each a, a multiplicity of nuances to the overall model. The different species of capital whose possession it defines the class membership and the distribution of which determines position in the relations of force constitutive of the field of power and, at the same time, the strategies that can be adopted in these struggles are simultaneously instruments of power, unequally powerful in reality and unequally recognized as principles of authority or signs of distinction of legitimate p.
This profitability is maximized through the establishment of a close relationship with the culture is legitimate and is represented by the ruling class. It is precisely this proximity which leads to a daily relationship and therefore unconcerned with acts such as going to the theatre, concerts of contemporary classical music etc, This social class is located on the social map where it intersects a large amount of economic capital with a no less important cultural capital.
This type of activities involve an important investment in social capital and cultural part of this type of classes, and therefore, they provide distinctive elements of habitus that reproduce culture as legitimate in contrast to other habitus of class. For its part, the petty bourgeoisie can be characterized by good will, cultural. This is understood as the distance that occurs between the knowledge and the recognition. That is to say, the petty-bourgeois worship of the dominant culture, acknowledge its value as a source of social distinction, but is not involved in a close relationship with her.
Frequently, the distance between knowledge and recognition, evidence of their lack of proximity with the culture of legitimate what would be demonstrated your alodoxia cultural. This concept covers all those errors of identification of the culture as legitimate in the that illustrates this distance.
Culture, petty-bourgeois generates a series of by-products of the culture legitimate, to put it briefly, they are cheaper and produce the same effect. For reasons of space, I shall not dwell here on the nuances and differentiations that exist within each social class.
For its part, the habitus of the working class is defined by the choice of the necessary. From there comes the rule of the principle of conformity, which has its explanation in the sense that it is a wake-up call to the people of popular classes that tend to be own shares of the habitus bourgeois.
The lining of common sense of these practices and choices gives the habitus of the group, with a consistency very difficult to transgress. Furthermore, it suggests a hierarchy of enclasante of habitus is unconsciously assumed as a mental structure in the different social groups and that, again, appears as the natural, obvious, or even desirable.
Apparently editing chatelaine of The distinction. Criteria and social foundations of taste, Pierre Bourdieu, by comparing it with the French edition, La distinction, Les edition de Minuit , it lacks the introduction.

The distinction. Criteria and social bases of taste. Pierre Bourdieu
A sociological report about the state of French culture, Distinction was first published in English translation in In the International Sociological Association voted Distinction as one of the ten most important sociology books of the 20th century. Those with lower volumes of overall capital accept this taste, and the distinction of high and low culture, as legitimate and natural, and thus accept existing restrictions on conversion between the various forms of capital economic, social, cultural. Those with low overall capital are unable to access a higher volume of cultural capital because they lack the necessary means to do so.
