STUDY ABOUT SOCIAL HABITUS PIERE BOURDIEU IN RELATIONS OF THE CHRISTIAN AND ISLAMIC PEOPLE IN MANADO
The results of various national agency surveys show that Manado is the most tolerant city in
Indonesia in these recent years. One of the indicators is that between Muslims and Christians
are considered very well, of course, there are aspects that become a factor in the establishment
of a harmonious relationship between the two. This paper focuses on how religious social life,
patterns of relations between Muslims and Christians in Manado by using Pierre Bourdieu's
social habitus theory to analyze the data as well as the information. The theory developed by
Bourdieu is felt by the author to be quite contextual to understand the social conditions in a
multicultural society. There are several findings obtained by the author, including tolerance
embedded very strongly in the community, the attitude of accepting and giving, gathering, and
telling stories has become the habitus of Manado people. When habitus departs from the
cultural unconsciousness means this tolerant attitude occurs naturally and it also becomes a
characteristic of the Manado people themselves. This paper departs from a mini-research by
observing and interviewing several neighborhood members and religious leaders.
