In this book, these questions are answered from an action theoretical view point. A basic football theory is presented in which the central characteristics of the football game are described in a logical and systematic way. As a way of acting within a game context, football is a fascinating way to overcome unnecessary obstacles. Football is too much fun to become a must, and too valuable to not to be taken seriously.
Jan W.I. Tamboer (1944) is retired now. As a philosopher of Human Movement and Sport he worked at the Faculty of Human Movement Sciences at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He has published a series of articles in various national and international journals, and is the author of several books.
