Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Sociology 2040 Winter-Exam
Q.1 Imagine a debate between
Goffman
and Foucault about how social order is created and maintained. What arguments would
Goffman
raise about
Foucault;s
emphasis on social regulation(and self-regulation)to explain the maintenance of social order, and what claims would Foucault make about
Goffman’s
dramaturgical analysis of how social order is preserved? About what would they agree and/or disagree regarding social order(and why), and what could they learn from each other?
Erving
Goffman
while passing by an outdoor cafe in Paris spots Michael Foucault sitting at a table by himself. Since
Goffman

Goffman
: Hello...
The end:

from society in this institution for the rest of my life.
