Goffman’s sociology provoked numerous interpretations, testimony to
the ambiguous legacy his work represents. The critical literature suggests
a host of dichotomies informing his writings. Are they best seen as
structuralist or symbolic interactionist, formalist or phenomenological,
modernist or postmodernist, Machiavellian or existentialist, realist or
empiricist? While Goffman’s ideas cannot be reduced to any one of these
categories, they nonetheless capture some of the tensions and ambiguities
of his sociological thinking. Acquaintances of Goffman tell of how he
enjoyed testing the limits of the rules and understandings shaping faceto-
face conduct in restaurants, cinema queues, lecture theatres and living
rooms.
