    Falling For The Feint – An Existential Investigation Of A Creative Performance In High-Level Football.Kenneth Aggerholm, Ejgil Jespersen & Lars Tore Ronglan - 2011 - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 5 (3):343 - 358.
    This paper begins with the decisive moment of the 2010 Champions League final, as Diego Milito dribbles past van Buyten to settle the score. By taking a closer look at this situation we witness a complex and ambiguous movement phenomenon that seems to transcend established phenomenological accounts of performance, as a creative performance such as this cannot be reduced to bodily self-awareness or absorbed skilful coping. Instead, the phenomenon of the feint points to a central question we need to ask (...)

    Philosophy, adapted physical activity and dis/ability.Ejgil Jespersen & Mike McNamee - 2008 - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 2 (2):87 – 96.
    In the formation of the multi-disciplinary field that investigates the participation of disabled persons in all forms of physical activity, little ethical and philosophical work has been published. This essay serves to contextualise a range of issues emanating from adapted physical activity (APA) and disability sports. First, we offer some general historical and philosophical remarks about the field which serve to situate those issues at the crossroads between the philosophy of disability and the philosophy of sports. Secondly, we bring brief (...)

    Conversion Gait Disorder—Meeting Patients in Behaviour, Reuniting Body and Mind.Ejgil Jespersen, Anika A. Jordbru & Egil Martinsen - 2008 - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 2 (2):185-199.
    The Hospital for Rehabilitation, Stavern, in Norway has treated patients with physical symptoms with no organic cause, so called conversion disorder patients, for over a decade. For four years research on the treatment has been carried out. Patients with conversion disorder seem not to fit in traditional somatic hospitals because their patienthood depends upon psychiatric diagnosis. Ironically, they appear not to belong in psychiatric hospitals because of their physical symptoms. The treatment offered these patients at hospitals for rehabilitation is adapted (...)

    Skill Acquisition in Ski Instruction and the Skill Model’s Application to Treating Anorexia Nervosa.Ejgil Jespersen & Liv Duesund - 2004 - Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society 24 (3):225-233.
    The Dreyfus skill model has a wide range of applications to various domains, including sport, nursing, engineering, flying, and so forth. In this article, the authors discuss the skill model in connection with two different research projects concerning ski instruction and treating anorexia nervosa. The latter project has been published but not in relation to the skill model. The skill model may very well be applied to these areas, and the authors conclude that in doing so, it also brings about (...)
