engagement is belief


All participants must believe in the game they are playing, and in the value of what is at stake in the struggles they are waging. The very existence and persistence of the game or field presupposes a total and unconditional “investment,” a practical and unquestioning belief, in the game and its stakes.


-Pierre Bourdieu
