From the BBC Radio 4 series about life's big questions - http://www.bbc.co.uk/historyofideas
Do you have a fixed character? Or do you play many roles depending on the situation?
Erving Goffman argued that we display a series of masks to others, enacting roles, controlling and staging how we appear and constantly trying to set ourselves in the best light. If this is true do we have a true self or are we endlessly performing?
Narrated by Stephen Fry. Scripted by Nigel Warburton.
