Abstract

Ullrich Bauer explains in his contribution how a follow-up on childhood and youth-oriented crisis research can take place in a methodologically complex way. He attempts to harness Bourdieu’s late research perspective on the “misery of the world” and considers the possibilities of replication for childhood and adolescent research. The result is a suggestion to take the important content of Bourdieu’s discourse seriously and to attempt to understand crisis structures from the subjective perspective as a product of relationality. This approach, which is aligned with Bourdieu’s thought praxeology, is oriented on the modes of perception of children and adolescents. At the same time, it attempts to capture the dominant structures which imprint the individual dispositions. As a result, an invitation is presented for the childhood and youth-related replication of perhaps Bourdieu’s most important empirical work, which allows a childhood and adolescent perspective to include, with crises, a subject of the current diagnosis of the time and thus take on a critical self-positioning.
