A comprehensive, contextual and referential 

bibliography and mediagraphy 

of all works and public statements 

by Pierre Bourdieu.


This bibliographical documentation started with our bibliography "Leitfaden durchs Labyrinth der Gelehrsamkeit Pierre Bourdieus" ("Thread through the maze of scholarship: Pierre Bourdieu"), pp. 271-311 in our book "Das symbolische Kapital der Lebensstile. Zur Kultursoziologie der Moderne nach Pierre Bourdieu" ("The symbolic capital of life styles. Contributions to the sociology of culture and modernity after Pierre Bourdieu"), Fankfurt /M.-N.Y. 1994 (Campus). We wish to thank the publisher, Campus Verlag, and our editor, Mr. Adalbert Hepp, for the permission to use the original bibliography. 

Based upon that, it was updated and enlarged, especially with all available AV-media informations, and reworked  for internet-use by changing all internal references into clickable links. In addition to that, all online available versions of Bourdieu texts are included with the link active at the moment of documentation. These links may be outdated, of course. But please note that we can take no responsibility for the content or copyright of any web link shown on our pages.
