The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life by Erving Goffman pdf free download

The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life by Erving Goffman pdf free download. I mean this report to serve as a sort of handbook detailing one sociological perspective from which social life can be studied, especially the kind of social life that is organised
within the physical confines of a building or plant. A set of features will be described which together form a framework that can be applied to any concrete social establishment, be it domestic, industrial, or commercial.

The perspective employed in this report is that of the theatrical performance; the principles derived are dramaturgical ones. I shall consider the way in which the individual in ordinary work situations presents himself and his activity to others, the ways in which he guides and controls the impression they form of him, and the kinds of things he may and may not do while sustaining his performance before them. In using this model I will attempt nor to make light of its obvious inadequacies. The stage presents things that are make-believe; presumably life presents things that are real and sometimes not well rehearsed.

More important, perhaps, on the stage one player I presents himself in the guise of a character to characters projected by other players; the audience constitutes a third party to tlle interaction-one that is essential and yet, if the stage performance were real, one that would not be there. In real life, the three parties ‘are compressed into two; the part one indiĀ­vidual plays is tailored to the parts played by the others present, and yet these others also constitute the audience.

Still other inadequacies in this model will be considered later. The illustrative materials used in this study are of mixed status: some are taken from respectable researches where qualified generalisations are given concerning reliably recorded regularities; some are taken from informal memoirs written by colourful people; many fall in between. The justification for this approach (as I take to be the justification for Sirnmel also) is that the illustrations together fit into a coherent framework that ties together bits of experience the reader has already ilad and provides the student with a guide worth testing in case studies’of institutional social life.
