Sample text

Frayssinet (1968) develops the most precise idea of aesthetic interpretation: sport itself (and not its reception) is an art like music, poetry, the dance. In support of this hypothesis he collects a number of examples. For this purpose he defines "sport" 38 Perspectives of the Philosophy of Sport as "an activity in the form of a contest requiring an intense muscular effort which demands great expenditure of energy. This contest is usually turned into a spectacle" (33). He refers to all phenomena as art which fall under the discipline of the fine arts (beaux-arts) and whose raison d'etre lies in their effort to achieve beauty-value (beaute-valeur).

The (almost) ideal athlete-"one with these laws"-is so far "for ever", shares the eternity of those laws. He feels and represents that which remains stable, fundamental, a part of "eternal reality", although he makes each game, if only for a moment, into a new occurrence in history. In accepting the irrevocable judgement, in creating together with his fellow players the "totality" of the game, in escaping the "remorseless flux of time", the athlete is "sport incarnated, sport instantiated, sport located", and by that fact is man himself, incarnated, instantiated and located (243-248).

This assumption only seems strange to those whose thinking is still under the influence of the mind-body dualism. Connoisseurs of sport, particularly the athletes themselves, are opposed to the reduction of sporting activity to the "physical"; sport is just as much a "cosa mentale" as painting, to quote the phrase with which Leonardo sought to liberate the latter from the stigma of "manual labour" (18). Historical evidence for the "inclusion thesis" is the close association of sport and art in Ancient Greece.
