Body and culture from the perspective of physical education teacher training


The article aims to understand the meaning of the relationship between body and culture in Physical Education. It followed a qualitative methodological approach of the systematic review type. The query was made through the descriptors body, culture and physical education as a time frame 2004 to 2019. The content analysis was based on the epistemological construction of Le Le Breton: (a) social and cultural logics of the body; (b) the body in the mirror of the social; and (c) social imaginaries, using the NVivo12 software. The results show that the relationship between body and biological aspects is strongly influenced by normative standards dictated by the environment and that the conception of body, related to culture, has been undergoing transformations and (re)significations.
