Goffman on power, hierarchy, and status

TitleGoffman on power, hierarchy, and status
Publication TypeBook Chapter
AuthorsRogers, MF
Book TitleThe View from Goffman
PublisherPalgrave Macmillan.

Among the most commonly overlooked set of insights offered by Erving Goffman is his commentary, comprised of both explicit and implicit elements, on the interrelationship among power, hierarchy, and status in everyday life. In fact, Goffman has been subject to criticism for his apparent failure to treat these sorts of stratification-related phenomena. To date the most detailed critique of Goffman along these lines is Alvin Gouldner’s analysis.1
