Short description of contents:
While it is normally understood that the period we refer to as the Renaissance saw a significant development of physical play and exercise and a growing orientation towards a positive appreciation of its propriety and benefits, it is also true that at the same time a variety of texts displayed a concern and warning against excess and its negative consequences. Although such concerns may be predictable and sound like common sense, it is probably worth keeping them in mind to get a more accurate picture of contemporary theory and practice. The resulting picture is one that does not allow for oversimplification, although the value of moderation  not too much, not too little  continues to play the role of dominant discourse, as it had done for a very long period.
