Abstract: Game-Playing as a Three-Dimensional Form: Teleological, Praxiological and Normative

Play is a much-debated concept within the field of contemporary philosophy. No existing theory can be considered conclusive but leading thinkers concur that play is a paradigmatic microcosm within the field of human institutions. This essay, however, seeks to throw a light on all that is distinctive and noteworthy in game-playing, drawing attention to the special relationship play establishes between end-goals, rules and praxis, a relationship which, according to the author, is the necessary and sufficient condition for ludicity.
