Abstract or Description

This article synthesises the contributions of Erving Goffman and situational-interactionist sociology to rethinking the subject. In particular, it analyses the impact that this perspective has for the modern concept of subject and its contribution to a relational theory of the latter. The interactive nature of the subject, its constitutive multiplicity and the importance of superficial relations in its social configuration are three of the main ideas developed by this perspective and discussed in this paper. the article concludes by setting out the possibility of taking these claims as the starting point of a theory of the subject, and some of the difficulties this would entail.
