Kritiek van de sportieve rede: Een filosofische archeologie van de sport

Research output: ThesisPhD Thesis


Starting from the principle of pure immanence to avoid new normative hierarchies, this Critique of Sports Reason unwinds three major ontological paradigms in modern sports: the still prevailing 'sports as play' paradigm, its apparent antipode 'sports as fight' and the hidden discourse of 'sport as sexuality'. In doing so, this philosophical archaeology integrates the continental philosophical approaches of Foucault, Deleuze, Kristen and Agamben.
