offers a less partisan and more recent overview.
Everyday life sociologies cover a broad theoretical range. In Andrew Weigert's Sociology of Everyday Life (1981), for example, he suggests four perspectives with this particular emphasis: Erving Goffman's dramaturgical work, which provides a theatrical metaphor for analysing how people present themselves in everyday life; Harold Garfinkel's ethnomethodology, focusing on the procedures through which people assemble their everyday lives; the phenomenology of Alfred Schutz, Thomas Luckmann, and others, which offers a philosophical foundation for the analysis and constitution of everyday consciousness; and Henri Lefebvre's critical theory, which examines the allegedly repressive contradictions of everyday living under capitalism. Only the last of these does not adopt a microsociological frame of reference.
