Abstract : The article examines the conflicts that exist between ethics and aesthetics. It tries to apply Erving Goffman-s book -Frame Analysis- to the empirical case of the bullfight, so that the former will help cast some light to the empirical case of the bullfight, which in turn should illustrate the very power of the theory as well as show its limitations. It shall propose first a literal application of -Frame Analysis- to the properties of the object of judgement, that is, the bullfight, second, an instrumental application to the properties of the subjects, that is, those involved in bullfighting, either for or against it, and third, an analogical transposition of a frame-analytical description to the various realms of values mainly ethical and aesthetic.

Keywords : Aesthetics bullfights ethics frame Analysis (Book) frames (Social sciences) GOFFMAN Erving (1922-1982)
