    Regarding “habitual”: Talal Asad’s and, I think Saba Mahmood’s (I haven’t read her book yet) discussion of how Islamic understanding of the importance of embodied virtues—for instance you cannot rule on Shai`a unless you live Shari`a—challenges the foundational secular distinction between private and public, an understanding they directly connect to “habitus” may be interesting.
