Book Description

Handbook of Embodied Cognition and Sport Psychology (PDF) is the first systematic collaboration between cognitive scientists and sports psychologists considers the mind-body relationship from the perspective of athletic skill and sports practice.

With 26 chapters by leading researchers; the PDF ebook connects and integrates findings from fields that range from philosophy of mind to sociology of sports. The chapters show not only that sports can tell scientists how the human mind works but also that the scientific study of the human mind can help athletes succeed. Sports psychology research has always focused on the notions; themes; and models of embodied cognition; embodied cognition; in turn; has found striking confirmation of its theoretical claims in the psychological accounts of sports performance and athletic skill. Athletic skill is a legitimate form of intelligence; involving cognitive faculties no less sophisticated and complex than those required by mathematical problem-solving.

After presenting the key concepts necessary for applying embodied cognition to sports psychology; the ebook discusses skill disruption (the tendency to “choke” under pressure); sensorimotor skill acquisition and how training correlates to the development of cognitive faculties; the intersubjective and social dimension of sports skills; seen in team sports; the notion of “affordance” and its significance for ecological psychology and embodied cognition theory; sports practice in cultural and societal contexts; and the mind’s predictive capabilities; which enable anticipation; creativity; improvisation; and imagination in sports performance.

NOTE: This only includes the ebook Handbook of Embodied Cognition and Sport Psychology in PDF.
