Historians, psychologists and philosophers have taken different views on the relation of play and culture, for it makes all the difference whether the two are assimilated, opposed, ordered hierarchically or ordered reciprocally. In this course we read several key thinkers on the subject, with special attention to questions of practice and evaluation, and particular attention to the structure of argument. Pathway: Design Studies.
