Abstract: 

The purpose of this study was to measure the cultural capital of classes based on their socioeconomic status among Isfahani citizens. The theoretical approach of this research was based on a combination of Pierre Bourdieu and Max Weber's theories. In terms of methodology, the present study used the survey research method, and the questionnaire technique was used to gather information. The sample of the present study included 400 citizens of Isfahan City aged 20 to 64 years living in 14 urban districts in 2014, who were selected using a multistage cluster sampling method. A one-way analysis of variance, eta coefficient, and multivariate regression were used to analyze the data. At a descriptive level, the obtained results showed that most of the citizens were in the middle class, and the amount of cultural capital and its dimensions were different among the classes, in a way that the lowest average belonged to the lower class, then the middle class, and the highest average belonged to the upper class. Also at an analytical level, the findings showed that the socioeconomic status had a significant relationship with the cultural capital, and among its dimensions, it played the greatest explanatory role in the context of institutionalized cultural capital.
