This is the first edited collection of articles on philosophical issues in play. It begins with conceptual questions about the nature of play, before considering what various philosophers (such as Plato, Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, Sartre, Deluze and Gadamer) had to say about it. The final section is dedicated to applied issues within play faced by parents, play-workers, children and adult gamers.
