By Didier Eribon

Paru en octobre 2009, Retour a Reims a rencontré un écho considérable et suscité de très nombreux débats. C'est à partir de cet accueil et des questionnements qu'il a fait surgir que Didier Eribon entreprend aujourd'hui de reprendre et d'approfondir le récit et les réflexions qui s'entrecroisaient dans cet ouvrage. En ancrant toujours, bien sûr, sa démarche dans l'expérience vécue et dans l'exploration d'une mémoire personnelle et d'une histoire familiale dont il s'attache à restituer les significations sociologiques et politiques.

La société assigne des areas. Elle énonce des verdicts, qui s'emparent de nous et marquent nos vies à tout jamais. Elle installe des frontières et hiérarchise les individus et les groupes. l. a. tâche de l. a. pensée est de porter au jour ces mécanismes d'infériorisation et l. a. logique de los angeles domination sociale. C'est à un véritable renouvellement de l'analyse des sessions, des trajectoires, des identités (le style, los angeles race...) et du rôle principal et ambivalent des associations (notamment le système scolaire, le droit, los angeles politique...) dans leur fabrication que nous convie Didier Eribon. Avec pour horizon l'idée fondamentale que seule une démarche qui position au centre de ses préoccupations le problème des déterminismes inconscients par lesquels nos vies sont régies peut nous permettre, par-delà les incantations lancées par les intellectuels populistes qui saturent l'espace de l. a. gauche radicale, d'ouvrir l. a. voie à une politique de l'émancipation.

Dans ce moment volet, l'auteur de Retour a Reims nous donne un nouveau grand livre, appelé à vite devenir, comme le précédent, un classique des sciences sociales et de l. a. théorie critique.
