The birth of sports from the spirit of agonal eccentricity
University of Belgrade, Faculty of Political Sciences
In this paper, we reconstruct the anthropological genesis of the historical assumptions of sport. As a "flawed creature", or as one whose being is determined by the structure of "eccentricity", one has a need for self-overcoming, which manifests itself also as a competition with others, among other things, in physical and playing abilities. Thus another man, in sports as an opponent, represents an "agent" who mediates the processes of self-cognizing and self-fulfillment. For this to be possible, there must be an a priori precondition for competition in humans, which we have named as the conceptual construct of proto-sport.
