Symbolic power accounts for discipline used against another to confirm that individual's placement in a social hierarchy , at times in individual relations but most basically through system institutions, in particular education.
Also referred to as soft power , symbolic power includes actions that have discriminatory or injurious meaning or implications, such as gender dominance and racism.
Symbolic power maintains its effect through the mis-recognition of power relations situated in the social matrix of a given field. While symbolic power requires a dominator, it also requires the dominated to accept their position in the exchange of social value that occurs between them. The concept of symbolic power may be seen as grounded in Friedrich Engels ' concept of false consciousness.
To Engels, under capitalism, objects and social relationships themselves are embedded with societal value that is dependent upon the actors who engage in interactions themselves. Dominant actors in a society must consciously accept that such an ideological order exists for unequal social relationships to take place.
Louis Althusser further developed it in his writing on what he called Ideological State Apparatuses, arguing that the latter's power is partly based on symbolic repression. The concept of symbolic power was first introduced by Pierre Bourdieu in La Distinction.
Bourdieu suggested that cultural roles are more dominant than economic forces in determining how hierarchies of power are situated and reproduced across societies. Status and economic capital are both necessary to maintain dominance in a system, rather than just ownership over the means of production alone. The idea that one could possess symbolic capital in addition and set apart from financial capital played a critical role in Bourdieu's analysis of hierarchies of power.
For example, in the process of reciprocal gift exchange in the Kabyle society of Algeria, where there is asymmetry in wealth between the two parties the better endowed giver "can impose a strict relation of hierarchy and debt upon the receiver. This, in turn, perpetuates a social structure favored by and serving the interests of those agents who are already dominant.

Language and Symbolic Power
Bourdieu develops a forceful critique of traditional approaches to language, including the linguistic theories of Saussure and Chomsky and the theory of speech-acts elaborated by Austin and others. He argues that language should be viewed not only as a means of communication but also as a medium of power through which individuals pursue their own interests and display their practical competence. Hence every linguistic interaction, however personal or insignificant it may seem, bears the traces of the social structure that it both expresses and helps to reproduce. It also opens up a new approach to the ways in which language is used in the domain of politics. For politics is, among other things, the arena in which words are deeds and the symbolic character of power is at stake. This volume, by one of the leading social thinkers in the world today, represents a major contribution to the study of language and power.

The multiple faces of symbolic power
William A. Corsaro, Language and Symbolic Power. By Pierre Bourdieu. Harvard University Press,
Symbolic power accounts for discipline used against another to confirm that individual's placement in a social hierarchy , at times in individual relations but most basically through system institutions, in particular education. Also referred to as soft power , symbolic power includes actions that have discriminatory or injurious meaning or implications, such as gender dominance and racism. Symbolic power maintains its effect through the mis-recognition of power relations situated in the social matrix of a given field.
In conscious opposition to the idealist tradition of much of Western philosophy, his work often emphasized the corporeal nature of social life and stressed the role of practice and embodiment in social dynamics. Hence every linguistic interaction, however personal or insignificant it may seem, bears the traces of the social structure that it both expresses and helps to reproduce. The internal structures become embodied and work in a deeper, practical and often pre-reflexive way. Doxa tends to favor the particular social arrangement of the field, thus privileging the dominant and taking their position of dominance as self-evident and universally favorable.
