Abstract: For several decades, modern philosophy and science have been studying the phenomenon of the body with interest. Sport provides a huge illustrative material for rethinking the importance of sport for a person and his skillful activity in constructing reality and a new type of knowledge. The author shows that sporting events testify to a peculiar phenomenon of a constructivist nature, the analysis of which draws attention to the importance and role of bodily rationality, to a new type of knowledge (knowledge-like), to the formation of subjectivity as a complex process of designing a new subject of cognition and its new interactive capabilities. Based on modern philosophical and scientific achievements, the article emphasizes that bodily rationality should not only be taken into account in the formation of knowledge about the body, but also become the basis in the scientific description of such an actual type of human life as sports. The philosophy of sporting events cannot be described without resorting to the use of bodily rationality, and it itself acts as a determinant in the bodily type of deployment of thought. A new type of organization of knowledge, the causality and structure of which is associated with the bodily (morphological) organization, is brought to life by human actions, realizing kinetic subjectivization in practice. The process of subjectivation, that is, the formation of a complex subject - the subject of the competition (in this case, the participant of the competition and his spectators-fans) - determines an unusual type of deployment of thought: a complex integrity is formed on the basis of bodily experience and kinesthetic experiences, the synthesis of which has an external side, and in parallel facing inward. The type of deployment of thought, taking into account the bodily one, appears as a constructivist activity, and reality - as a bodily-constructivist project in vital epistemological turbulences.
