Despite the fact that Luc Boltanski is probably the most well-known living French sociologist his works are hardly known in Hungary. Boltanski was influenced by Bourdieu but later “set himself against the former master’s sociology” and has developed his own sociology through a continuous debate with the master either explicitly, or more frequently implicitly. In this edition we endeavour on an impossible task: within the restricted space limits, we try to give an insight to his ever expanding, very diverse works that although encompassing many fields still can be considered coherent.
