Abstract

The article offers an historical reconstruction of the reception of Bourdieu in Italy, especially among sociologists, from 1966 till 2009. It reconstructs the whole series of translations, discusses the mechanisms of reception/reading among Italian social theorists and empirical researchers, and tries to explain the patterns of reception identified though an analysis of the structure and transformation of the Italian sociological field since the sixties. The paper contributes to the literature on intellectual reputation as well as to the research on the international circulation of ideas with an empirical case study.
