Mika Hannula: The Philosophy of Play (2021)
The Philosophy of Play ( Leikin filosofia, FIN ) by curator and writer Mika Hannula. Published in collaboration with Parus Verus and available in Finnish. Orders via Playart Productions.
The book is a compact yet profound study of actions that arise in part from wanting and in part from needing to act, trust and hope – which constitutes the essence of the philosophy of play.
“The book does not so much examine what is played or how, but instead focuses on why play and playing – starting a game and keeping it going – is so fundamentally important.” Mika Hannula.
