The “Performative Play” as a Didactical Way to “ the Very Things”

Anja Kraus


The centre of Childhood Research is formed by the hypothesis that children co-interpret the world and participate actively in its constituting. In consequence, Childhood Research concentrates on the perspectives of children, exploring their relationships to themselves and to their life-worlds. Starting from the approach of constitutive phenomenology we go into this ambitious matter. Then, the hypothesis is unfolded that the didactical setting of a „performative play“ can serve to show aspects of the relationships of children to themselves and to their life-worlds.
