P.E. & Sports Studies toward Peace in the World. The Establishment of World Academy of Physical Education and Sports Studies for All Nations of the World (NGO, Non Governmental Organization).
This paper discusses how to foster peace in the world via the establishment of global physical education and sports studies. It begins by defining the word human as a way to grasp the entirety of the people living throughout the world. It goes on to discuss a hypothesis for creating ball game studies, explaining that when a human plays a ball game, the human becomes a ball human, and describing the living phenomenon of each type of ball game. It suggests that the existence of the ball human can be understood as three aspects: the movement-cultural existence of the ball human, the educational existence of the ball human, and the social existence of the ball human. The paper discusses the movement cultural ontology of the ball human, the methodology of the ball human, and the construction of a national theory in each nation of the world. A message to the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of Japan regarding the national theory of physical education and sports studies and world responsibility is included. (SM)
