Kinesiology and Physical Activity


Introduction to Humans Moving: A Guide to Philosophy in Action

John M. Charles

This book presents and represents the human side of movement study.  As introductory texts become increasingly empirical and scientific, this books stands alone as a tribute to the human values in contemporary kinesiology.  It provides an overview of the lifetime skills that can be developed through human movement study.  It provides not only a framework for critical thinking, but it also involves the reader in the process.  Unlike many books writtten for use in a class setting, this one should not be discarded when the class is over.  Although the ideas may be presented in a class setting, they provide a framework for life.
