Quest for Excitement: Sport and Leisure in the Civilizing ProcessCited by: Elias and Dunning's original conference paper, ‘The Quest for Excitement in Unexciting Societies’, developed out of Elias's earlier work, The Civilizing Process (civilizing process).One aspect of Elias's argument in The Civilizing Process was that people in modern societies have increasingly come to exhibit relatively high levels of individual self-restraint.
