In Back to the Dance Itself, Sondra Fraleigh edits essays that illuminate how scholars apply a range of phenomenologies to explore questions of dance and the world; performing life and language; body and place; and self-knowing in performance. Some authors delve into theoretical perspectives, while others relate personal experiences and reflections that reveal fascinating insights arising from practice. Collectively, authors give particular consideration to the interactive lifeworld of making and doing that motivates performance. Their texts and photographs study body and the environing world through points of convergence, as correlates in elemental and constant interchange modeled vividly in dance. Selected essays on eco-phenomenology and feminism extend this view to the importance of connections with, and caring for, all life. Contributors: Karen Barbour, Christine Bellerose, Robert Bingham, Kara Bond, Hillel Braude, Sondra Fraleigh, Kimerer LaMothe, Joanna McNamara, Vida Midgelow, Ami Shulman, and Amanda Williamson.

Back to the things themselves I cry, or else philosophy will die. My cry is an ontological one, asking, as constitutive phenomenology does, 'what is this thing (called dance) made of'? How do we live consciousness in dance? Let me count the ways. In its aim to rescue consciousness and experience as key concerns of philosophy, phenomenology is no stranger to conceptual analysis, but not as a science. At the same time, definitional work is key in the performance of phenomenology, with the experiential study of things (anything) being basic. How does meaning arise in dance, for instance, and why is intentionality important? What is the difference between movement and action? What are the materials of dance? Or shall we assume that dance is wholly immaterial? These are fundamental questions of philosophical enquiry in phenomenology that interest me deeply in this essay, even as I have engaged phenomenology for 49 years and am still learning. Phenomenology is not a philosophy of closure, and in this spirit, is being developed on several fronts in dance, as recent Intellect journals show, Dance Movement and Spiritualities, 2:2, and Dance and Somatic Practices, 8:2. I hope to contribute further in this endeavour. When I first encountered non-dual discourses of 'the lived body' and 'pre-objective world', I realized what a goldmine this represented for bodily oriented studies. I barely scratch the surface here, or in the wider scope of Dance and the Lived Body (1987) and Dancing Identity: Metaphysics in Motion (2004). Since Edmund Husserl's initiation of phenomenology, questions regarding normative understandings of body, self, materiality and subjectivity continue. Consciousness is shaped, or we could say 'intended', in countless ways. This has consequences for understanding somatic movement arts as a field of study, as we take up.

The revival of the Olympic Games in 1896 was just one result of the unparalleled interest in physical culture that consumed Europe and America in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Author Harold Segel shows that this obsession with physical culture resonated widely through the modernist movement, and he traces its profound influence on the arts in the early 20th century. Illustrated.
