Predicaments : Moral Difficulty in Everyday Life Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Building on Goffman's observations on the moral basis of social interaction, this book elaborates on the notion of a predicament.

Stebbins discusses the particular moral concepts including: deception, selfishness, situational ignorance, conceit, and solitude.

As a new scientific concept, the predicament helps correct the dearth of generic concepts available for the sociological study of morality in everyday life.
