Example text

Durkheim used suicide and crime as means of highlighting the social solidarity that is their opposite; Garfinkel extended the method to reality­construction as a whole.  But let us take the plunge anyway: leave the cognitive plane, and recognize the x­factor as emotion.  Our ordinary usage refers to emotions as experiences that are, for the most part, sudden and dramatic.  Garfinkelian mundanity is merely a generic emotional quality at the middle of the plus­minus scale.  But I will also attempt to show that the dramatic, short­term emotions are explainable against the backdrop of the long­term emotions.

Garfinkelian mundanity is merely a generic emotional quality at the middle of the plus­minus scale.  But I will also attempt to show that the dramatic, short­term emotions are explainable against the backdrop of the long­term emotions.  The sheer physical presence of human animals in the same place is a precondition for the emotional and cognitive processes that follow.  This makes the group itself the focus of attention, as a transindividual reality, influencing members from outside while permeating their consciousness from within.

My hypothesis is that this correlates with emotional energy and moral sentiments.  There is high conformity within the group, along with strong distrust of outsiders and alien symbols.  The persons who commit these Goffmanian sacrileges feel anxiety and embarrassment.  By way of summary, let us recapitulate the model, first in terms of the effects on long­term emotions (emotional energy), and then in their effects on short­term, transitory emotions.  Thus, EE tends to cumulate (either positively or negatively) over time.
