Theories of Self-Concept emphasize how identity is constructed through interaction with others. Pragmatic theories emphasize social processes of interacting within a community. A dramatistic view describes the role performances that people enact in creating an identity. Postmodern views of self observe how a relational perspective of self is created as a person participates in various relational communities.
