Que dit la philosophie des jeux vidéo ?

What does Philosophy say about Video Games ?

This issue brings together contributions from a particular discipline: philosophy. Philosophy and game studies have an ancient relationship in the French-speaking context, but what do philosophers have to say, in their own right, about video games? This dossier confronts points of view that belong to different theoretical traditions, and are sometimes considered incompatible: analytical philosophy, philosophy of science, philosophy of technology, political philosophy, phenomenology, aesthetics, etc. It allows to compare approaches on shared problems: the relationship between fiction and rules, between game and play, the body and rhythmic aspects of playing. But this issue also questions philosophy as a discipline: its approaches, its corpuses, its relations to game studies and social sciences.
