        Subject: role vs rule?

Dear colleagues,

I would be grateful for any pointers to philosophical discussions of the 
difference between playing a role and following a rule -- apart from 
Peter Winch's in The Idea of a Social Science and, of course, 
Wittgenstein's Philosophical Investigations. Is the latter the locus 

Many thanks.
