Humanities in Physical Education. Basic Stuff Series I. 5.
Studer, Ginny L.; And Others
The concrete and practical aspects of the humanities are examined as they relate to the study of human movement. The first chapter examines movement as a process that not only promotes good health but also contributes to a feeling of general well-being in an individual. Movement and physical appearance are discussed in the second chapter. The third chapter deals with movement and personal achievement, self confidence, and the satisfaction of participation in group performance. The psycho-social aspects of human movement are discussed in the fourth chapter. The fifth chapter considers the aesthetics of movement. In the sixth chapter, movement as a vehicle for self renewal is explored as well as the cultural values reflected by human movement. (JD)
