The paper presents an anthropological analysis of whiz sports from a new standpoint in the social sciences. This standpoint ignores the existing split between a science of society and a science of the individual. This approach also offers a new way of thinking the “collective.” The concept of transitional space defined by Winnicott is put forward as a central concept that permits consideration of the individual/group interface.
