What We Think About When We Think About Football

Simon Critchley's What We Think About When We Think About Football

What do we think about when we think about football? Football is about so many things: memory, history, place, social class, gender (especially masculinity, but increasingly femininity too), Family identity, tribal identity, national identity, the nature of groups. It is essentially collaborative, even socialist, yet it exists in a sump of greed, corruption, capitalism and autocracy. Philosopher Simon critchley attempts to make sense of it all, and to establish a system of Aesthetics - even poetics - to show what is beautiful in the beautiful game. He explores, too, how the experience of watching Football opens a particular dimension in time; how its magic wards off oblivion; how its dramas play out national identity and nonidentity; how we spectators, watching Football with tragic pensiveness, participate in the play. And of course, as a Football fan, he writes about his heroes and villains: about Zidane and cruyff, clough and Revie, shankly and klopp.
