Spanish Abstract: Presentamos aquí una teoría dramatística del sujeto, la identidad personal y de la interioridad del yo basada en, o quizás más bien contenida en, el capítulo que concluye el gran tratado de psicología social de Erving Goffman ́Frame Theory", ́Teoría de los marcos ́. Marcos interiorizados, en este caso, y que estructuran al sujeto por dentro, al igual que estructuran la realidad social entre los sujetos. Para entender la estructura de la realidad, y la estructura de nuestro propio yo, hay que releer a Goffman.

English Abstract: We present here a theory of the subject, of personal identity and of the self's interiority based on, or perhaps rather contained, in the concluding chapter of Erving Goffman's seminal treatise of social psychology, 'Frame Theory'. In this case we are dealing with interiorized frames, structuring the self from within, just as they structure the social reality between the subjects. In order to understand the structure of reality, and the structure of our own self, a rereading of Goffman is imperative.
