Playing with Limits. Building the Body with Sports

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract


In an individualised society, "becoming oneself" has become a social imperative, the right and duty of every individual. If taking care of one's body is one of the ways in which this duty can be fulfilled, sport is a fitting example of this concept. The article analyses three examples of post modern sports activities - extreme sports, glisse and fitness. Beyond their specific characteristics, they refer to a new body concept.
