Abstract

Spanish abstract: La 'Teoría de los sentimientos morales' de Adam Smith (1759) es un influyente precursor de las teorías dramatúrgicas del yo desarrolladas por los teorízadores del interaccionismo simbólico o conductismo social. El análisis de la teatralidad del yo en Smith realizado por David Marshall proporciona perspicaces observaciones que deben complementarse situando de modo explícito el dramatismo de Smith en el contexto de teorías del sujeto más recientes, como las desarrolladas por los interaccionistas sociales (Charles Cooley, G. H. Mead, Erving Goffman).

English abstract: Adam Smith's 'Theory of Moral Sentiments' (1759) is an influential precedent of the dramatistic theories of the self developed by symbolic interactionists. David Marshall's analysis of the theatricality of the self in Smith provides valuable insights which must be complemented with an explicit interpretation of Smith's dramatism in the context of later theories of the self, such as those developed by social interactionists such as Charles Cooley, G. H. Mead, and Erving Goffman.

Keywords: Adam Smith, Self, Subject, Dramatism, Erving Goffman, Theatricality, Morality, Conscience
