Abstract

How do new technologies come to be used in sport? This book moves beyond the idea of functionality to explore the many other important factors that athletes and sporting bodies consider throughout the process of adoption. Few would question the difficulty of producing an elite athletic performance. The high level of training, combined with intense competition and pressure from media and sponsors, can be challenging for athletes and sporting bodies to negotiate. The book investigates how these factors affect the use of technology in sport, while simultaneously demonstrating the influence of new technologies on sporting practice. Using actor-network theory – an approach common in studies of science and management but seldom applied in this field – it offers readers an inside view into elite sport and the part that technology plays in training, competition and broadcasting.

Abstract

Menschliche körperliche Bewegungen bedeuten etwas. Sie sind Zeichen, die auf andere Zeichen derselben Bewegungs-Sprache verweisen. Eine solche Einheit von Bewegung und Bedeutung ist in der Sportwissenschaft weitgehend unstrittig. Strittig ist, welche sachlichen und methodischen Konsequenzen das hat. Der vorliegende Band unterstellt, dass sich Bedeutungen in den Bewegungen bilden, und nicht in individuellen oder kollektiven Akteuren, die ihren Bewegungen erst noch Bedeutung verleihen. Aus der Sicht von Sportwissenschaft, Religionswissenschaft, Ingenieurwissenschaft und Ethnologie wird die Relevanz dieser Annahme erprobt. Der grundlegende, auch für den Einsatz in der Lehre geeignete Band ist ein Beitrag zur Schärfung der Rede von »Bewegungs-Kultur«.

Abstract

Im Auftauchen neuer Spiele und Bewegungsweisen in städtischen Räumen zeigen sich gesellschaftliche Veränderungsprozesse. In neuen Sportarten wie Triathlon und Inlinehockey entstehen Welten, in denen alte Grenzen zerfließen, bewährte Haltungen aufgegeben und institutionalisierte Ordnungen umgearbeitet werden. Hier bilden sich Gemeinschaften aus, in denen Zugehörigkeit immer wieder aufs Neue über das Vorführen von Bewegungen, Geräten, Kleidung und Musik hergestellt wird. Diese Gemeinschaften orientieren sich an den Merkmalen eines gemeinsamen Stils. Nicht die Leistung, nicht der Dienst an der Mannschaft bildet das Credo der neuen Spiele, sondern die Treue zum Stil. Die Autoren entwickeln am Beispiel neuer urbaner Lebensstile und performativer Praktiken eine Theorie des Wandels von Gesellschaft im Medium von Spiel, Körper und Bewegung.

Abstract

Ob Körperbewegung oder Tanzbewegung, ob Bewegung der Bilder, der Töne oder der Schrift, ob soziale oder politische Bewegung, der Begriff »Bewegung« wird in Ästhetik, Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften häufig benutzt. Anders als in den Naturwissenschaften aber ist dem konzeptuellen Stellenwert des Bewegungsbegriffs in den Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften bislang nur wenig Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt worden. Die interdisziplinäre Textsammlung verfolgt das Ziel, den Status quo des Begriffs in den Sozial- und Kulturwissenschaften zu reflektieren und sein theoretisches Potenzial zu bestimmen. Sie geht von der Annahme aus, dass Bewegung nicht nur eine »physikalische Tatsache« und damit etwas quasi Natürliches ist, sondern ein soziales und kulturelles Konzept, das auf verschiedene Weise naturalisiert und essenzialisiert worden ist. Der Band präsentiert verschiedene Gebrauchsweisen des Begriffs und ermöglicht damit ein weiteres konzeptuelles Nachdenken über Bewegung als einen Begriff, dessen Rolle im »Tanz der Disziplinen« neu zu entfalten ist.

Abstract

The role and value of science within sport increases with ever greater professionalization and commercialization. Scientific and technological innovations are devised to increase performance, ensure greater accuracy of measurement and officiating, reduce risks of harm, enhance spectatorship, and raise revenues. However, such innovations inevitably come up against epistemological and metaphysical problems related to the nature of sport and physical competition. This Special Issue identifies and explores key and contemporary philosophical issues in relation to the science of sport and exercise. It is divided into three sections: 1. Scientific evidence, causation, and sport; 2. Science technology and sport officiating; and 3. Scientific influences on the construction of sport. It brings together scholars working on philosophical problems in sport to examine issues related to the values and assumptions behind sport and exercise science and key problems resulting from these and to provide recommendations for improving its practice.
