French sociologist looked into nature of things eg, why is it that people who come from lower income brackets don't like opera and the classics, or someone from affluence might not like AC DC. How do tastes develop?

Is there an interaction between the environment and social experience and who you become. Function, pragmatism, expression of things that are valuable to us. What makes us value a thing?
