    Back to The Phenomena (of Sport) – or Back to The Phenomenologists? Towards a Phenomenology of (Sports) Phenomenology.Henning Eichberg - 2013 - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 7 (2):271-282.
    Is phenomenology a method or a philosophy (of ?ontological? character)? This question is discussed here with a recent philosophical collection of articles about the phenomenology of sport at hand.

    Bodily movement has a deeper meaning than modern sport science might recognize.
