Activité et intentionnalité : le cas de l'Education Physique et Sportive

Abstract : What interest could have a philosophical study on Physical Education ? What subject of interests could provide the Physical and Sportive Education (EPS) to Philosophy ? The aim of this thesis is to answer these two questions. First we will highlight the philosophical background that influence most often implicitly the pedagogical choices made by teachers, this in order to initiate a research programme in Epistomology of Physical Education. This will lead us to widen the investigation field of Physical Education ( Action , Knowledge,..) in the prospect of externalist conception. It is indeed in dissociating the language from the causes and reasons that we can understand what someone does when he acts. The focus on the meaning of the action leads us to describe the other uses that the subject could make with his gestures in other situations. Under the influence of L. Wittgenstein?s works, it is a linguistic conception of the learning process that we develop in this thesis. Consequently, we will avoid looking for the factors limiting learning success and consider solely an internalist study of the subject. In many cases it is more judicious to try to understand why the subject acts the way he does. Consequently we have identified a new way of learning in Physical Education: to know how to identify the action the subject is doing in the course of learning phase. The field of investigation in Physical Education highlighted by the externalist perspective leads to the following conclusion: to reconsider the notion of the limiting factors of the subject in order to take into account the impersonal dimension of his identity.
