Introduction: In Reproduction in Education, Society and Culture Pierre Bourdieu and Jean-Claude Passeron discuss the „symbolic violence‟ of the education system. Systems of symbolization and meaning are imposed on groups or classes of people, they say, in a way that “renders them legitimate in the eyes of the beholder” (Bourdieu and Passeron 1977, 5). Pedagogic actions reproduce the values of the teacher, whether in a family or an institution, and are given legitimacy through the discourse of education. This reproduction of cultural values through education is what they call the „cultural arbitrary‟ – it passes itself off as the natural order of things rather than as the arbitrary socio-historical construct that it is.
