It is hard to think that Bourdieu does not draw directly on Wittgenstein, as well as from Gadamer (cf. Harding, 1992). But he does not acknowledge their influence in any systematic way. Wittgenstein demonstrated that both knowledge of `social facts' or social meanings and, indeed, all claimed empirical knowledge, is founded in conventions which are social practices rather than objectively `true' mirrors of a reality or rationally worked out chains of logical argument (Wittgenstein, 1975). In making this argument, Wittgenstein undermines the particular claims to foundational truth which most Western thought has relied on since the Enlightenment.

For critical theory needs to be understood against the background of these debates, of the German, subsequently the US, and later the European (but predominantly French) intellectual context of Christopher Farrands 21 the questions it asks and the methods of reasoning it employs. One issue it recognises, but leaves for later writers to explore satisfactorily, is the question of the relationship between consciousness and subjectivity in a material culture. Gramsci has some insights into this question, which remains a critical and insufficiently clarified issue in how we deal with post-communist Marxian theory.

If we repeat ourselves in that conversation, we can learn iteratively. Second, it is negotiated in the sense that it questions its own discourse and is open to questions from others: this is part of the `dialogue'. Third, the dialogic community to which it contributes to represents an attempt to agree standards of knowledge, the conventions within which arguments can be justified or refuted. Fourth and finally, it is reflexive in the sense that Bourdieu asks us to be. We debate with ourselves in our writing, and we need to write with self-suspicion (Bourdieu and Wacquant, 1992) if our knowledge claims are to withstand the test of reflexivity.
