Meaningful sport is a series of discussions on why and how involvement in sport is meaningful, valuable, and worthwhile, as well as what are the threats to meaningful engagement in sport and movement culture more broadly. The guests are leading experts working in philosophy, sociology and psychology of sport, who share insights from their research and personal explorations of meaning of sport in their lives. How can the great existentialists such as Nietzsche, Sartre, and Heidegger help us understand meaningful lives in and through sport? How can we study meaning in sport psychology? Is elite sport alienating and exploiting athletes? Is health technology impoverishing our movement culture? Stay tuned!
