Sport and art : an essay in the hermeneutics of sport by Andrew Edgar( Book )

6 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores relationship of sport to art. It does not argue that sport is one of the arts, but rather that sport and art hold common ground. Both are ways in which humans confront philosophical challenges, though they do this through very different media. While art deploys sensual media such as paint or sound, sport is the pursuit of a physical challenge at which the athlete may fail. This is to propose, in an argument that has its roots in Hegel's aesthetics, that sport may be interpreted as a way of reflecting upon metaphysical and normative issues, such as the nature of human freedom, fate and chance, and even our sense of space and time. This argument is developed by proposing the concept of a 'sportworld', an 'atmosphere of theory' and a 'knowledge of history' through which an event is interpreted and thereby constituted as sport. Ultimately, this book argues that in order to be truly appreciated, sport must be understood within a modernist aesthetics. That is to say that sport is not about beauty, but rather about the struggle to find meaning in sporting triumph and crucially sporting failure. This book was published as a special issue of 'Sport, Ethics and Philosophy'
