Andrzej Borowski, Erving Goffman and Michel Foucault - Discourses Analysis, ILSHS Volume 1, International Letters of Social and Humanistic Sciences (Volume 1)
    Functioning of the man in extreme conditions posed by some social institutions was a subject of many scientific studies so far. Among them some works are taking the special place E. Goffman and M. Foucault. Every school of the power should be so checking the total structure of action influencing action/ interaction/s other in special cases and of oppositions and dodge with which this action is connected. Using to such a school analytical categories Goffman’s neosymbolic of interactionism in the microsociological aspect and coming from Foucault’s discourse analysis in the macrosocjological aspect a novelty especially in examinations can constitute of total institutions associated with the authority of the state.
