Materializm historyczny a koncepcja pól społecznych Pierre`a Bourdieu
Historical Materialism nad Pierre Bourdieu's Theory of Social Fields
In the article I tried to conduct a comparative analiysis of Marx's historical materialism and the theory of social fields by French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu. In the first step I discussed the two conceptions separately, to compare them in the second part of the text. Of course the short form of article do not provide enough space to perform a very thorough analysis, so I concentrated on this aspect of the two theories which in my opinion are the most important. I wanted to show the even if Bourdieu criticized Marx - from the left side - he also took his intellectual heritage seriously and did not throw Marx away, but tried to modifiy his thought in some areas which - in his opinion - were indefensible.
