What remains to be discovered is where those patterns and constellations derive from and why; this I will discuss more fully in the ﬁnal chapters. 3 Alienation from interaction In a later study, Interaction Ritual: Essays on Face-to-face Behaviour (1967), Goffman displays an increasing interest in situations in which the individual does not fully participate during an interaction. For example, while an individual is listening to a speaker, she may engage in other goal-oriented activities, such as chewing gum, smoking, adopting a comfortable sitting position, performing repetitive tasks and so on, without being distracted from her main focus of attention.
For Goffman, the individual is shaped through Socialisation and the individual learns to adopt social roles and rules. However, if it were the case that social rules or roles were to dominate our inner existence, individuals would not be individuals; instead they would be nothing more than members of a social unit. Yet individuals are different and they produce different external conversations within the same social environments. This suggests that the source of each individual’s externalisation must be different from any other’s, otherwise all individuals would produce identical external conversations and perform broadly alike in similar roles.
First, I shall analyse Simmel’s distinction between the private and the social, and his views on differentiation and freedom with regard to the individual, then discuss inner needs and social forms. Following this, I will explore Goffman’s views on society and the self and introduce his ‘role concepts’. Finally, I will explore ‘self-talk’ as a distinctive form of internalisation and externalisation. 1 Simmel and Goffman The relationship between internal and external conversation can be seen as an aspect of the debate on structure and agency, but focused on the dialogical level of this relationship.
