Abstract

Given the status of Erving Goffman in the social sciences, a lot has been written about him but his early and (especially) unpublished publications are not widely known, although they contain few original ideas that were never used in later part of his career and some that were elaborated in better known works. The paper discusses intellectual context, influences and phases of Goffman's sociology, especially predramaturgical phase – his unpublished master's thesis, two early papers, one unpublished report and unpublished PhD thesis. In the context of his later thought, doctoral thesis is especially interesting because it contains Goffman's first exposition of interaction order. At the end of the paper we see how Goffman went into dramaturgical phase.
