Starting from the principle of pure immanence to avoid new normative hierarchies, this Critique of Sports Reason unwinds three major ontological paradigms in modern sports: the still prevailing ‘sport as play’ paradigm, its apparent antipode ‘sport as fight’ and the hidden discourse of ‘sport as sexuality’. In doing so, this philosophical archaeology integrates the continental philosophical approaches of Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, Julia Kristeva and Giorgio Agamben.
