(Herbert James), Can reason be practical. London: British Academy, (OCoLC) The Critique of Practical Reason might seem a tad passé. We now know that morality is an evolved trait that enables human beings to live in communities. Kant, with his talk of the categorical imperative and the deontological sources of morality, hardly seems worth bothering over/5(13).

Practical Reason is excellent as a very broad, very general, but insufficient introduction to Bourdieu's thought. Some of the most important articles in this collection are "Genesis of the State" and "The New Capital." These articles should not be seen as, in themselves, sufficient to understanding Bourdieu.
