This is why, in the example above, there was the focus on action (as work), and the question about dependence or independence: according to the phase, the degrees of autonomy of the sick person and the family members are greater or smaller, or rather the conditions imposed by the phase require different kinds of activity on the part of the participants.

Here, as everywhere else, Goffman assumes that social scientists may make analytical use of their intuitive (habitus-)knowledge because they share this with other members of society. 4 DECONSTRUCTIONS Goffman also pursues his goal of unveiling social ‘meaning mechanisms’ and ‘mental machination’ with a kind of sociological deepstructure hermeneutics that ‘deconstructs’ such daily-life constructs as that of the speaker and such distinctions as that between truth and falsehood (see, for example, 1959, 1961a, 1971, 1981).
Many of Goffman’s ‘discoveries’ are a result of the reflective and distancing perspective of his ‘frames’ that give new significance to the obvious and the well-known (cf. Williams 1988: 73). Here it is important that Goffman relies on certain 25 interpretative tools which, like the theatre or games, have their own world of meaning and reality which, however, resembles that of the object of investigation. This is the basis of Goffman’s ‘comparative analysis’ which leads – in a systematic and empirically valid manner – to the determination of identities, relationships and also differences.
