After all, opposing one’s own habitus means to question and challenge social conditions, that is, to offer resistance. In the education protests, this challenge of a dominant worldview and social order has clearly taken place, even if it was not always explicit and not intended by everyone.
The practical sense can be understood as the unconscious dimension of actions and practice, as a direct, intuitive understanding of the world that is related to what is expected of the world and of the actions of other agents. The acquired explicit rules, the lived regularities and habits provide agents with orientation and stability. Their practical sense stabilises the inner balance by enabling them to adequately react to interpellations of the social environment. As a consequence, it does not only contribute to the maintenance of the social order, but also tends to contribute to the maintenance of existing power relations (McDonough, 2006), – by drawing on their practical sense, that they have built over a long period of time, human beings permanently rebuild structures of domination in their daily actions.
