How to Think About Exercise, Paperback

How to Think About Exercise Paperback

Part of the The School of Life series



It can often seem as though existence is split in two: body and mind, flesh and spirit, moving and thinking.

In the office or at study we are 'mind workers', with superfluous bodies.

In the gym we stretch, run and lift, but our minds are idle.

Damon Young challenges this idea, revealing how fitness can develop our bodies and minds as one.

Exploring exercises and sports with the help of ancient and modern philosophy, he uncovers the pleasures, virtues and big ideas of fitness.

By exercising intelligently, we are committing to wholeness: enjoying and enhancing our full humanity. One in the new series of books from The School of Life, launched January 2014: How to Age by Anne Karpf How to Develop Emotional Health by Oliver James How to Be Alone by Sara Maitland How to Deal with Adversity by Christopher Hamilton How to Think About Exercise by Damon Young How to Connect with Nature by Tristan Gooley
