Body Cultures by Henning Eichberg

Book Description

Body Cultures explores the relationship between the body, sport and landscape. This book presents the first critically edited collection of Henning Eichberg's provocative essays into 'body culture'. Eichberg, a well-known scholar in continental Europe who draws upon the ideas of Elias, Focault, Habermas and others, is now attracting considerable interest from Anglo-American sociologists, historians and geographers. This collection has been extensively edited to highlight Eichberg's most important arguments and themes. Introductory essays from the editors and Susan Brownell provide clear explanations and interpretations as well as a biography of Eichberg.

Bodily Democracy by Henning Eichberg Bodily Democracy, Paperback (December 2011)

The philosophy of sport has more to tell than about elite competitions, it is about people's everyday doing. Sport for all delivers material for a philosophy of practice, and of living democracy - as a phenomenology of people in movement.
