內容簡介top Talent Development, Existential Philosophy and Sport 簡介 'Why don young athletes in sport just quit??Starting with this question and drawing on existential philosophy, phenomenology and hermeneutics, Talent Development, Existential Philosophy and Sport seeks a deeper understanding of the experience of being a talented young sportsperson striving to become an elite athlete.An alternative to conventional approaches to talent development, which are governed by a worldview of instrumental rationality and objective measurements of performance, the book introduces key ideas from educational philosophy to describe talent development through the concept of elite-bildung. It pursues an existential understanding of developing in sport as a process of freedom, self-transcendence, striving for excellence and building up habits.The book highlights a range of ambiguous and intriguing existential phenomena ?most prominently wonder, question, expression, humour and repetition ?and reveals an existential layer of talent development in sport that can facilitate the process of becoming an elite athlete and gives young athletes a number of reasons not to quit. By deepening our understanding of performance and development in sport, and the process of becoming an elite player, this book is important reading for any serious student or researcher working in the philosophy of sport, sports coaching, sports development, sport psychology or applied sport science.
