Play and Humanity

Johan Huizinga

Johan Huizinga

“Play lies outside the antithesis of wisdom and folly, and equally outside those of truth and falsehood, good and evil.  Although it is a non-material activity it has no moral function.  The valuations of vice and virtue do not apply here.” Homo Ludens, A Study of the Play-Element in Culture, Copyright © 1949 by J. Huizinga from The International Library of Sociology, Founded by Karl Mannheim, Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group,  Page 6.
