As a cultural phenomenon, sport has become an indispensable entity in today?s society. Existing sport philosophical concepts are varied and controversial oftentimes leading to a number of diverse interpretations. The aim of the present thesis is the socio-philosophic analysis of sport in the areas of the individual and society. In approaching the issue from a philosophical stance, a concept analysis and a presentation of its characteristic features are necessary. M. Stygermeer?s explanations serve a suitable theoretical framework, allowing some advance to the complexity of the term. One crucial element concerning sport is the aspect of the game. Using the game theories by J. Huizinga and H. Scheuerl, an overview on the nature of sport is provided, presenting sport activities as a potential form of the game sphere.In the form of leisure time activities, sport does not have a consistent, uniform interpretation. However, in philosophical discourse, sport is discussed with regard to its structure relating to the work sphere; it is thus defined as bordering on or being identical with the realm of work. In the light of this particular context, it is important to note which concept of work is referred to when comparing it to the realm of sport. The definition by H. Marcuse provides an interesting approach to sport between the realms of leisure time and work. Finally, the relation between sport and the individual is outlined. Based on P. Bourdieu?s theory of the habitus, the physico-sociological analysis by R. Gugutzer and M. Csikszentmihalyi?s concept of the flow, a person is regarded as the connecting link of social sport and body constructs as well as physical individuality. The result of this philosophical examination is the finding that sport cannot be subject to a rigid interpretation due to its nature as a constantly developing system; rather it is the consideration of its diversity and numerous aspects, which leads to a coherent, true insight.
