Remote Sport: Risk and Self-Knowledge in Wilder Spaces

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
Abstract
Previous discussions on the value of sport in remote locations have concentrated on 1) environmental and process concerns, with the rejection of competition and goal-directed or use oriented activity, or 2) the value of risk and dangerous sport for self-affirmation. It is argued that the value of risk in remote sport is in self-knowledge rather than self-affirmation and that risk in remote sport, while enhancing certain kinds of experience, is not necessary. The value of remote sport is in offering the opportunity for experience that enhances the participants’ knowledge both of self and of the environment with which they interact.
