Beschreibung

The author argues that rather than viewing play simply as a preoccupation and a vehicle for skill development, it is a social and cultural phenomenon of adult life, enveloped by wider structures and processes of society. The author distinguishes play from other forms of human social expression, particularly ritual, communitas, and work.
