In spite of this, or perhaps even because of this, Garfinkel has attracted a large number of followers who made ‘ethnomethodology’ into a school of its own. 17) developed out of ethnomethodology, as an independent research orientation that concentrates on identifying the structural mechanisms of linguistic and nonlinguistic interaction.

Two central concepts are used: the first is the trajectory, and the second is work. Trajectories are categorized according to their direction: there are stable, unstable, ascending and descending curves. Each of these directions indicates a phase, and each of these phases requires of the actors (the sick person and the family members) different types of work in the different lines of work.

Accordingly, Goffman strives to show how the elaboration of significant differences follows from the identification of common features (1961b: 5). For example, when he brings together social structures such as monasteries, concentration camps, psychiatric institutions, barracks and merchant ships and identifies them as ‘total institutions’, he then – in the next step – deals with the limitations of this frame, deriving from the structural peculiarities of the phenomena in question. Goffman handles every kind of data according to the same principle.
