A History of Habitat: From Aristotle to Bourdieu is the first of its kind to trace the history of the concept of habit in the Western philosophical tradition, including its classical, modern, and contemporary expressions. Each essay is written by a specialist and conveys the historical continuity between its central figure and those who came before, so it will be of value to anyone interested in how habit figures into the conceptual histories of philosophy, psychology, sociology, political theory, and literature.
