CORCUFF, Philippe. Of the possible revival of a critical theory in social sciences in France, between academic misadventures and tensions Bourdieu/Rancière. Rev. Cien. Soc. [online]. 2019, vol.32, n.44, pp.61-80.  Epub June 01, 2019. ISSN 0797-5538.

The historical link in significant sectors of social sciences between social criticism and emancipation seems at risk, in the academic and political fields, quite particularly in France today. It is from these stakes that takes shape the perspective of a comprehensive-pragmatic reconfiguration of a critical theory with emancipators supports in social sciences. For that purpose, are alternately envisaged certain current academic misadventures of relationships between sociological criticism and emancipation, and then the tensions between Pierre Bourdieu’s critical sociology and Jacques Rancière’s philosophy of emancipation. Alfredo Errandonea's sociology, drawing from an anarchistic inspiration, is used as a resource in this case.

Keywords : Alfredo Errandonea; Emancipation; Jacques Rancière; Pierre Bourdieu; Critical Theory.
