description: "Homo Ludens (""Man the Player"" in Latin) is a book written in 1938 by the cultural theorist Johan Huizinga that explores the play phenomenon in human society. Play is a pivotal, constitutive element in any human culture and exists on its own as a purposeless phenomenon. It is a part of life; life and situations within it can be seen as a game. By placing daily life segments in a playful context and placing games in a realistic context, the question of the place of play in our daily routine arises, and the boundaries between its definition and the definition of reality become obscure."
