MSc student, Jalal Movaghary-Pour, discusses the idea of sociology as a martial art. While recent contributions to this blog have answered the question ‘why sociology?’ by saying that it is kind, or that it encourages ‘T shaped’ expertise, in the following I would like to offer a different response by emphasising a another dimension of the subject; one which initially endeared me to it and has motivated my interest ever since. To borrow from Bourdieu, I study sociology because it is a martial art.
