This latter point returns us to the subjective world, but this time not through an existentialist view but to the philosophy of phenomenology. This ‘science of phenomena’ was established through a return to ‘things in themselves’; in other words, once the everyday world was ‘bracketed off ’, phenomenological study proceeded through the in-depth enquiry of individual consciousnesses. This method was developed by Husserl, who, as we know, in turn influenced Heidegger. Its most well-known exponent in France was Merleau-Ponty (1908–61), whom Bourdieu acknowledged as an early influence.
We shall see how his approach to art and culture offered a radical critique of aesthetics and the place they hold in the processes of art and culture. Bourdieu died of cancer in January 2002, just a few months after delivering his retirement speech at the Collège de France (see Weill 2001). He spoke of his work in terms of a personal journey of self-analysis. By this he did not mean a kind of personal introspection of problems, strengths and weaknesses. Rather, he argued that his theoretical approach needed to be understood in terms of apprehending the social forces which acted on him and, eventually, on us all.
This aspect of art is perhaps the most fundamental, the most naive. It is also the most personal; something is touched which evokes the individual and is unique. Art can also touch some timeless realm; there can be a feeling of transcendence, or a communication with a higher sense of being. Indeed, art can take on an almost religious significance; it can provoke us to spiritual experience as we enter into some sublime realm of hyper-reality which offers a way out of the mundane world of everyday life.
