Jouer selon les regles du jeu - Playing by the Rules of the Game - Spielen nach den Spielregeln

Edited by: Martina Ghosh-Schellhorn, Roland Marti

Games form an integral part of life and the rules that determine how they are to be played provide us with rich insights into the specific nature of cultures. Comprising theoretical, philosophical, and legal discussions, the contexts of game playing are comprehensively examined in essays which range widely through time and space. In focussing on the topic of game playing this volume of essays - which stems from a Transcultura symposium on the transcultural key-concept of "the rules of the game" - engages in a fresh way with the field of sports as a unique and yet shared cultural phenomenon.
