Abstract

Spanish Abstract: La teoría dramatística de la vida social formulada de modo sistemático por Erving Goffman, tiene varios precedentes entre sociólogos y otros escritores que enfatizan la teatralidad inherente a la vida social. Esta nota destaca la importancia dada por Thorstein Veblen, en su 'Teoría de la clase ociosa', a la teatralización de los roles sociales, algo que lo convierte en un importante teorizador del dramatismo social.

English Abstract: The dramatistic theory of social life, systematically formulated by Erving Goffman, has a number of precedents among social theorists and writers who emphasize the theatricality inherent in social life. This paper notes the importance given by Thorstein Veblen, in his 'Theory of the Leisure Class', to the acting out of social roles, which makes him a major theorist of social dramatism.
