This Special Issue will develop arguments concerning the overlap between art and sport. It is envisaged that should confluences be found, sports science may thereby be enriched. Of course, there may be contrary arguments to the effect that art and sport are radically distinct. However, drawing from aesthetics and in particular, so-named aesthetics of the everyday, it could be argued that sport as an aesthetic phenomenon bears similarities with art and perhaps even vice-versa. Such a link may even be useful so far as new coaching methods are concerned and enhancing the mental focus of the athlete/aesthete…
There are also extra-aesthetic overlaps that can be explored, namely the common institutional base of both such disciplines and their relationship to say, politics, economics and history – and how that in turn may related to philosophical themes. Essentially then, this issue weaves an inter-disciplinary dynamic in the creative oscillation or relationship between art and sport.
Aims and Scope:
  1. art
  2. sport
  3. sports-science
  4. philosophy
  5. institutions
  6. aesthetics
