Playful Gaming.
Makedon, Alexander
A philosophical analysis of play and games is undertaken in this paper. Playful gaming, which is shown to be a synthesis of play and games, is utilized as a category for undertaking the examination of play and games. The significance of playful gaming to education is demonstrated through analyses of Plato's, Dewey's, Sartre's, and Marcuse's theories of play. An analysis of the learning of norms and values in political and educational socialization games also is made. (DB)
