This SPECIALIZED DICTIONARY (and the factual sociological content of the QUALIA III Monograph) is derived from a book by one of the 20th Century's greatest and foremost Sociologists, Dr. Pierre Bourdieu, of one of France's premiere graduate Institutes, the College de France, Paris, where Dr. Bourdieu is the President of the College of Sociology. His book is Reproduction in Education, Society and Culture, where 'Reproduction' means the reproducing, producing, and continuing, of the existing 'status quo', or social means, or mechanisms, or, in reality, the underlying structure, of any society, by which the 'Rulers', the Nobility, the Aristocracy (i.e., the Rich), actually 'rule' and control that society, and continue their societal rule, from generation to generation, by 'training' and placing their progeny, their children, in the 'positions of power' throughout society which enable them to inherit not only the 'riches' but also the 'power', as passed on to them by that ruling class. The 'Definitions' excerpted here are from his book and the Reader hereof is advised to read the entire book for a more complete picture of the actuality of that which has been presented here. Dr. Bourdieu's book, of course, relating such facts and information as presented here in detail, is however 'voiced' in a most academic prose, as well as presented in the French language. The English translation of the book is given following here:
