How can it in the process be seen as an intervention in the socio-political affairs of the day? In contrast to other contributions within the performative perspective for example, Alexander et al.
Although Journal of Classical Sociology 11 4 the concept was initially used in marketing and military operations, social psychologists have increasingly explored how people in interaction position themselves and position or reposition others.
Contrary to over-deterministic approaches, theorists of positioning use the concept to attribute agency and flexibility to the individuals involved. People are not seen as simply internalizing central values of society, nor are their actions explained exclusively in terms of roles or rigid rule following.
Instead, individuals are seen as continually posi- tioning themselves in relation to others, thereby also positioning the others who in turn affect their positioning. Especially in the competitive intellectual arena, positioning is crucial and written texts are particularly well placed for intellectuals to position them- selves and also to position intellectual allies and opponents.
Positioning theorists focus on the positioning of individuals, but the notion of positioning can also be linked to other entities. First-order posi- tioning is implied and tacit, as in the case of a politician whose statements or actions implicitly position him or her on the left of the political spectrum.
Whilst in everyday life people tend to display tact which minimizes the fre- quency of second-order positioning, the latter is not uncommon in intellectual interac- tions because conflicts and power struggles in intellectual life often take place through explicit discussions and meta-discussions. These discussions involve reflexions on and articulations of what was previously taken for granted.
To take intellectual products as performative also involves taking into account the various material and symbolic props and devices that help to bring about effectively the intervention or positioning. Not every intellectual product manages to bring about a sig- nificant intervention or positioning.
For instance, the prestige and marketing strategies of the publisher of a book are performative tools that allow the book to have an impact, but so are the aura, authority and connections of the author and his or her rhetorical skills.
Narratives are rela- tively coherent stories that accompany and make possible effective positioning.
Jean-paul Sartre - l'Enfance d'Un Chef
Baert Narratives may refer to the authors themselves, as in autobiographies, but they may also refer to other people or entities: by positioning itself as a resistance novel, for instance, a book may invoke a narrative of a defiant, cohesive nation or of an exploitative, treacher- ous class.
Positioning depends not just on what the narrative explicitly states, but also on what it implies and, crucially, what it leaves out. In performative terms, the strength of a narrative often depends on what is not said see also Berman, Narratives may also include refer- ences to the future. For instance, they may present a blueprint for a new beginning — be it a new life or a more just society — or they may depict the future as closed and contained in the past.
Sociologists of intellectual life often assume that people have a relatively stable habi- tus or self-concept, engrained in them at an early stage, which shapes their intellectual taste, beliefs and decisions, providing a general direction to their work. As such, they find it difficult to make sense of the shifting positions intellectuals take, how they some- times compromise or reinvent themselves.
So, ironically, the case study of Rorty shows the limitations of the notion of self-concept rather than its applicability or explanatory power.
But her perspective does not explain why Sartre was virtually unknown to a larger public until the end of the war. It was around — that Sartre managed to reinvent himself as a politically commit- ted writer just as he would reinvent himself at various points later on.
Positioning and repositioning seem to be stronger explanatory notions than habitus. I mentioned earlier that in contrast to static perspectives, the theory of positioning recognizes an element of agency and fluidity in social life: people are seen as able to reposition themselves and in the process possibly reposition others. There are, of course, limitations to this fluidity, but, contrary to Bourdieu or Gross, I am more interested in the sociological limitations that reside outside the individual.
Political parties or politicians, for instance, cannot con- stantly reposition themselves without losing credibility with the public. Neither can they so easily reposition their opponents or alter their narrative about socio-political matters without losing standing and authority. Intellectuals use the criterion of consistency to judge the work of each other, not just within each text, but also between texts, so intel- lectual repositioning involves costs and risks and is therefore not as frequent as in every- day life.
If it occurs, it needs to be accompanied by extensive justification. The more known and the more visible intellectuals are, the more likely shifts in position will be noticed and will need to be explained.
There is no evidence as to when precisely Sartre wrote the text, but the large bulk of it must have been in the later stages of see, for instance, Walzer, v—vi.
Who was Sartre at that time, and how was he positioning himself?
Was he known to the public, and if so, in what capac- ity? During this period he also published a number of philosophical works of a technical nature, influenced by German phenomenology.
Important in the context of this discussion is that by early Sartre was virtually unknown to a wider public. Because of his previous publications, he was known by a small group of elite writers and philosophers; he was respected by them and they saw him as an increasingly influential figure in the literary and intellectual scene.
But he remained unknown to a broader audience beyond this elite group. Baert All this changed in a remarkably short period of time. Between early and late , Sartre gained immense popularity, as did Albert Camus and Simone de Beauvoir Cohen-Sohal, —; Leak, 65— Their rising status in the public realm went hand in hand with the spread of existentialism well beyond the contours of the small intellectual elite in which it arose.
Sartre and his fellow existentialist travellers introduced the notion of politically engaged writing and portrayed it as central to the resistance and liberation of France. The trials of collaborationist authors like Robert Brasillach emphasized the significance of writing and the immense responsibility that accompanies it, thereby not only elevating the status of writers like Sartre who were associated with the resistance but also feeding into the frenzy of existentialism and its attendant notion of individual responsibility Kaplan, The spread of existentialism was not limited to France.
For instance, in and Sartre made two long trips to the United States which received considerable media attention, helping Sartre and exis- tentialism break into the American cultural market Cohen-Sohal, — By , Sartre had already become a trans-national public intellectual, catering for differ- ent audiences.
From the viewpoint of positioning theory, it is important to clarify how he located himself within the intellectual and cultural landscape. What type of public intellectual was he at the end of the war?
Two interrelated but analytically distinct features stand out. Authoritative public intellectuals not only possess high cultural capital but also exhibit charisma and character. Although they might be formally educated in a high-status discipline like philosophy, they tend to be generalists whose interventions have a strong moral component and who thrive on taking an outsider position.
By Dreyfusard intellectuals I am referring to writers who use their accomplishments within their field to speak out about political issues, who position themselves clearly at the left of the political spectrum and who are suspicious of the state and authority. Three features in particular characterize Sartre as a public intellectual in the Dreyfusard tradition.
This was different from the period before the war, when he was generally a-political. Secondly, consistent with his period before the war, Sartre located himself as an independent public voice: that is, he was keen to emphasize his independence not only from the government but also from any political party. Only at a later stage would he help to set up a political party of his own, which was short-lived Cohen-Sohal — Although in the Journal of Classical Sociology 11 4 mids he was broadly sympathetic towards the political causes of the left-leaning political parties, including the French Communist Party, he emphasized his autonomy.
It was only between and that he became more aligned with the Communist Party, but even then he kept his independence and never became a member Birchall, — Thirdly, although often drawing on abstract philosophical terminology, Sartre set out to comment on issues of contemporary social and political relevance. Sartre as an authoritative intellectual As explained above, by the mids, Sartre was positioning himself as a public intel- lectual, in particular an authoritative public intellectual.
I contrast authoritative public intellectuals with professional public intellectuals see also Baert and Shipman, — Professional public intellectuals draw on their expertise and on the authority derived from this expertise to speak out about socially and politically relevant issues.
So did Pierre Bourdieu when his sociological research into the effects of the erosion of the welfare state formed a social scientific platform for his increasing political involvement in the fight against neo-liberalism Swartz, In contrast, authoritative public intel- lectuals, like Sartre, are generalists; they might be formally educated in a certain disci- pline but they rely on their vast cultural resources and charisma to speak out about a wide range of topics well beyond their area of expertise.
For example, sociology and political sci- ence were institutionally weak and lacked public visibility shortly after the war. Therefore, there was space within the cultural landscape at the time for what appears, from a contemporary angle, to be an amateurish and unmethodical analysis of social and political issues.
It also partly explains why the English version of the book received a particularly hostile reception in the United States, where the professionalization and visibility of the social sciences were more advanced.
Indeed, the relative popularity and methodological rigour of The Authoritarian Personality Adorno et al. Sartre did not attempt to provide a comprehensive historical account of the issues involved, nor did he rely on a systematic sociological analysis, whether through surveys or properly conducted in-depth interviews. In many respects, Sartre positioned himself as a literary writer rather than a social scientist. As Michael Walzer vii—viii points out, the four ideal types in the book — the anti-Semite, the democrat, the inauthentic Jew and the authentic Jew — appear like characters in a play, and Sartre devoted more attention to their psychological dispositions and complexities than to the sociological dimensions of their being.
Some of the literary works to which he referred go beyond the French context.
But most of his literary references were French and often involve his contemporaries. Most of the collaborationist authors like Brasillach were explicitly anti-Semitic. But Sartre stood out in the way in which he highlighted the anti-Semitic dimensions of collabora- tionist writings; these were largely ignored in the heated discussions at the time.
Lucien entreprit aussi de persuader au Bon Dieu qu'il aimait'sa maman. Il avait son beau petit costume marin et on rencontrait des ouvriers de papa qui saluaient papa et Lucien. D'abord, ils l'appelaient: monsieur. Une fois, au retour de la promenade, papa prit Lucien sur ses genou?
Il remonta rageusement son pantalon et courut sejeter sur son lit. Il vit Germaine. Le matin du dimanche, au contraire, il s'endormait par les pieds: il entrait dans son bain, il se baissait lentement et le sommeil montait le long de ses jambes et de ses flancs en clapotant. Il eut trois fois de suite le prix d'excellence. Le lendemain et le surlendemain, il eut beaucoup de travail et toute cette histoire lui sortit de l'esprit.
Je regarde le ,bureau, je regarde le cahier. Je me gobe. Je ne me gobe pas. During her stay, she and Lucien were attracted sexually to each other, and this was a reason for Lucien to deny his homosexuality.
However, he could not let himself sleep with her in order not to hurt his reputation that may prevent him from being a leader later.
His meeting with Lemordant and the gang He met Lemordant, an active guy who interfered in politics, hated Jews , and supported the right wing.
His relationship with Maud started with a kiss and ended up with having sex later. Having a mistress increased his self-confidence and pushed away his feeling that he was homosexual.
Being a Camelot and discovering his existence He developed his hatred and anti-Semitic feelings towards Jews and tried to engage in the life of politics. The incidence that made a turning point in Lucien's personality was his refusal to shake hands with a Jew that made his friends respect him.
Consequently, he started to feel that he is a real man with convictions, rights and existence. He dragged his strength out of being seen as a man with convictions. In the end, he started to believe that he has the right to be existent, to have a virgin wife, and to become a leader.
The two stories depict the lives of their protagonists chronologically, starting from their childhood. Both authors borrowed from their own personal lives to build their protagonists, however Sartre denied the story being a biographical work. The experience is seen as a mistake and unpleasant experience for both main characters.
After discussing with Sartre The Childhood of a Leader, Beauvoir plans to write about herself as a little girl. The mutual influence is an example of the sharing of intellectual property by the two authors. Sartre portrays in this story hate and its failure. Lucien experiments with Freudianism and surrealism before finding hate, which truly keeps the abyss at bay. His hate is not developed through interactions with Jews, but is created because he is in a fog and needs to feel grounded.There were a few excep- tions to this rule.
Alexander J, et al. How can we account for its distinctive flavour, its inconsistencies and obvious omissions? Est-ce que j 'existe? But most of his literary references were French and often involve his contemporaries.
Positioning and repositioning seem to be stronger explanatory notions than habitus. Sartre as an authoritative intellectual As explained above, by the mids, Sartre was positioning himself as a public intel- lectual, in particular an authoritative public intellectual. Tout le temps qu'il parlait, il croyait ce qu'il disait.
