We all know that. On the matter of what some might now call dramaturgical theory, for example, let us remember the next-to-last page of The Presentation of Self in Everyday Lifewhere he somewhat playfully reveals that the conceptual framework of the book, using the language of stagecraft, is “in part rhetoric and maneuver.
