Abstract: With the basic theory and method of language-philosophy, within the extent of origination, essence and meaning concerning PE, as well as from the dimension of conceptual ontology, this paper analyses what “Physical Education is that which it is”is meant for. The author is aiming at proofing PE’s “greatness of origination”, “stability of essence” and “exactness of meaning”, among the three, an attching relationship exists. Saying that “Physical Education is that which it is” is no other meaning but emphasizing on the ontological uniqueness of physical education.We hope that the unique function of physical education might be appeared in the latter “is” among “Physical Education is that which it is”, which is certainly helpful for us to find out the real origination of physical education (otherwise, Meno’Paradox can not be avoided). Based on the above-mentioned ,a clear meaning of physical education might be founded out: physical education is nothing but a kind of education to the “physicalness” of human beings.
