Bourdieu referred to Sociology as a ‘combat sport’. Why do you think that may be?

Bourdieu uses the term to refer to the necessary defense of society and the social sector against an encroaching market system with it’s subverting logics, but also against political exclusion of the poor. In a sense, then, it is ‘defensive combat’ rather than a full on attack. He urges people to defend themselves with critical thought, to not lie down and accept what hierarchy tells them. So sociology as a weapon. Knowledge is power!
