BODY AND SOUL WACQUANT PDF

Access options available:. On the one hand, Bourdieu wrote, those who know the most about sport tend to lack the inclination or ability to appreciate much less be critical of its broader social connections and significance; on the other hand, those who possess the requisite skills to analyze its forms and social functions generally dismiss sport as unworthy of serious scientific investigation. Scholarly research and writing on sport has progressed a great deal in the last twenty years, but it is not until now, with the appearance of Loic Wacquant's dazzling ethnographic journey into the world of an inner-city Chicago boxing gym, that I would say for certain that Bourdieu's challenge has been answered. As serious about the sweet science of boxing as Wacquant is practiced in the craft of sociology, Body and Soul not only sets a new standard for scholarly research and writing on sport.

Yet for three years he immersed himself among local fighters, amateur and professional.

He learned the Sweet science of bruising, participating in all phases of the pugilist's strenuous preparation, from shadow-boxing drills to sparring to fighting in the Golden Gloves tournament. In this experimental ethnography of incandescent intensity, the scholar-turned-boxer dissects the making of prizefighters and supplies a model for a "carnal sociology" capable of capturing "the taste and ache of action.

And, by fleshing out Pierre Bourdieu's signal concept of habitus , it deepens our theoretical grasp of human practice. It is a virtuoso performance that could—if properly read and disseminated and emulated—put the study of sport at the center of all sociological theorizing and analysis. It is packed with fruitful conceptual and theoretical discussions.
