Abstract

Questions surrounding the existence of the petite bourgeoisie in socialist society arouse considerable controversy. To avoid purely semantic misunderstanding therefore it might be as well to state at the outset that this paper will consider the following problems:
  1. 1.

    Is the petite bourgeoisie in socialist society a class or a stratum?

     
  2. 2.

    What are the relationships between the petite bourgeoisie and other adjacent social groupings in socialist society?

     
  3. 3.

    Does belonging to a particular social group result in the acquisition of a set of cultural features which affect people’s thinking?
