The Inadequacy of Bourdieu’s Critique of the Phenomenological Tradition in Sociology* Martin Endress University of Duisburg-Essen Abstract. The purpose of this paper is to discuss Bourdieu’s criticism of what he calls “subjectivism,” that is, the tradition of phenomenologically based sociology, especially in the works of Schutz, Garfinkel and Goffman, as well as their followers.

To fit within the Austrian conception of theory, the empirical specificity of Weber’s Idealtypen had to be eliminated: Weber’s method had to be reformulated so as to yield instead concepts having universal and a priori validity. In Meaningful Structure Schutz drew on Husserl’s phenomenology to refashion Weber’s methodology in a way that answered these objections while attempting to retain the centrality of the actor’s subjective view. The Actor in the World of Everyday Life Schutz’s point of departure for his formal methodology of concept formation is the actor in the world of everyday life, and he developed a phenomenologically based account of this in the first four chapters of Meaningful Structure.

WILSON has observed, Schutz treated all general concepts in the natural as well as the social sciences as theoretical ideal types in his sense (1932/1967: 246) and ignored the point of Weber’s distinction between class concepts and Idealtypen. Schutz and the Problem of Subjectivity Schutz’s resolution of the problem of subjectivity reflects his conception of theory as an objective scheme of interpretation. Within that framework, the aim cannot be to represent the actual motives and beliefs of the actors whose conduct constitutes the phenomena under investigation.
