Students explore a passion for movement activity, dualism vs. wholism, movement and meaning, and the significance of games and play. They reflect on the intrinsic and extrinsic value of fitness, knowledge, skill, and pleasure. They consider the importance of self-knowledge and also respect for others.
The book culminates with chapters devoted to improving life through movement-related professions, and the opportunity to develop and write a personal movement philosophy to apply and rely on.
Addressing both the values that make the movement profession an exciting one and the ethics that help professionals deal with daily questions of right and wrong, The Philosophy of Human Movement is ideally suited to courses in movement sciences, sport and exercise science, and leisure studies.
