Le sport dans la sociologie française

Abstract : This article proposes to study sociology of sport from a sociological perspective, but also the general sociological point of view on sport. The main issues are : to what extent is this issue recognized in the field of sociology. Is it possible to identify an actual scientific community ? And if so, how is it structured ? How does it circulate the advance of its knowledge ? What are the main subject matters ? The study is based on a diversified corpus : sociology textbooks, French general sociological reviews, doctoral thesis (doctoral dissertation) in sociology of sport, research laboratories yearbooks (universities, CNRS), colloquiums, works and articles. We demonstrate that sport is minor issue within the field of sociology, though there is a quite active sociology of sport. We assert that this apparent paradox is to be essentially explained by the structuring of research and researchers in this field, and by the functioning of scientific community.
