Aims and Scope
Distinction is a much-used but rarely systematized basic sociological concept. It is used in particular in the sociology of culture and consumption, as well as in analysis of social structures and sociological theory. In this context, it can be observed that an understanding of the concept which does not bear a theoretical relation to practice theory has found a place in the analytical repertoire of German-speaking and international research. A systematic introduction to the material seems more important than ever. In a compact format, Oliver Berli offers theoretical and empirical insights into the central sociological perspectives on phenomena of distinction, and in doing so, illuminates the practical and material dimensions of the concept.
