    Play in Philosophy and Social Thought

    By Henning Eichberg

    Edited by Signe Larsen

    To understand play, we need a bottom-up phenomenology of play. This phenomenology highlights the paradox that it is the players who play the game, but it is also the game which makes us players. Yet what is it that plays us, when we play? Do we play the game, or does the game play us? These…
