LOPES, Felipe Tavares Paes. Bourdieu and Goffman: an essay on the common points and differences between both authors according to Bourdieu’s  perspective. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.2, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1808-4281.

In this work, my main purpose is to discuss two theoretical models that analyze the   phenomenical dimension of human being: the action. More specifically, I suggest a reflection on the common points and the differences which bond and separate Pierre Bourdieu’s action theory and the one proposed by Erving Goffman. To achieve this purpose, I based this essay on Bourdieu´s commentaries and critiques on Goffman´s theory, and I divided this paper in two parts. In the fist one, I described and analyzed the main criticisms both authors make about the action’s analyze objectivist model. In the second part, I described and analyzed the main criticisms Bourdieu makes about Goffman’s subjectivist model, pointing their epistemological, ontological and methodological differences.

Palavras-chave : Erving Goffman; Pierre Bourdieu; Action’s theory; Habitus; Presentations of self.
