In Bourdieu's sociology the sociologist's task is to denaturalize and to defatalize the social world, that is, to disenchant social agents from symbolic effects that veil the mechanism of domination and exclusion. Thus his sociological practice necessarily become a political intervention or a sociological engagement, by revealing the social mechanism which ensure the maintenance of the established order and whose crucial political function depends on the misrecognition of social relationships of domination. Similarly, the idea of "socio-analysis" proposed by Bourdieu, treats the sociological knowledge of symbolic domination as the means for self-understanding and for self-reappropriation. And thus "socio-analysis" can fulfil the clinical and the therapeautical functions by providing the means for a reappropreation of shemes of perception and appreciation which are at the root of a social misery. The purpose of this article is to focus on the epistemic relationship between Bourdieu's sociology of symbolic domination and the idea of socio-analysis, and to explain the sociological implications of socio-analysis.
