Contents A condemned man : between the nation and the autonomista -- Interlude: "Nog Lansur!" -- The shame of loving the condemned : the philosophy of Oscar Washington Tabarez
Summary In 'Entre Nous' Grant Farred examines the careers of international football stars Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, along with his own experience playing for an amateur township team in apartheid South Africa, to theorize the relationship between sports and the intertwined experiences of relation, separation, and belonging. Drawing on Jean-Luc Nancy's concept of relation and Heideggerian ontology, Farred outlines how various relationships-the significantly different relationships Messi has with his club team FC Barcelona and the Argentine national team; Farred's shifting modes of relation as he moved between his South African team and his Princeton graduate student team; and Suarez's deep bond with Uruguay's national team coach Oscar Tabarez-demonstrate the ways the politics of relation both exist within and transcend sports. Farred demonstrates that approaching sports philosophically offers particularly insightful means of understanding the nature of being in the world, thereby opening new paths for exploring how the self is constituted in its relation to the other.0Grant Farred is the author of a trilogy of works on sport and the event, of which 'Entre Nous' is the concluding volume. The other two are 'In Motion', At Rest: The Event of the Athletic Body' and 'The Burden of Over-representation: Race, Sport, and Philosophy'
