Approche sociologique du plaisir en sport et en EPS

Abstract : If take pleasure seems obvious, it is not the same when it comes to describe this fun and situate it in the historical and contemporary forms of satisfying and enjoyable living practices. If today, the concept seems legitimate to define the good life and see the attraction for certain activities and habitats, it would be simplistic to include in the same family, the variety of licensing practices that exist today. Similarly, the analysis would be too fast if we considered pleasure as the highest value by which everything is judged and appreciates. Differences emerge to describe the good from the bad fun, practical and without pleasure without considering that pleasure is the basis of personal investment, professional or social. Many practices as well as constraints and suffering are dominant but is carried out with reference to higher principles that give meaning to these investments. Whether in professional activities, in the management of family and domestic tasks or in leisure practices, hedonistic dominant sometimes lived far from the action. However, this notion seems to prevail today as social focal category. But with this variety of possible approach, the detour through sociology allows to bring some light to understand this nebulous meaning and practices that invest this sphere.
