The New Yorker on ecstatic soccer.
Critchley draws upon the work of the German philosopher Martin Heidegger to describe the “rapture of the moment” in soccer. In “Being and Time,” Critchley explains, Heidegger describes instances when “we are carried away in a rapture where we stand outside our immersion in everyday life and truly encounter that everydayness for the first time.” In Critchley’s telling, fandom in soccer involves the shared participation in such incandescent moments, experiencing them communally and conveying them to others, and yearning for the possibility that there might be more.
