Legitimation Code Theory (LCT) is a development in the study of knowledge and education that is being used to analyse a growing range of practices across increasingly different institutional and national contexts. LCT builds primarily on the sociological approaches of Pierre Bourdieu and Basil Bernstein, and on the philosophical ideas of critical realism. It also integrates insights from Karl Popper, systemic functional linguistics, Foucault, early cultural studies, and others.
