Philosophy and Sport, Paperback / softback Book

Philosophy and Sport Paperback / softback

Edited by Anthony O'Hear

Part of the Royal Institute of Philosophy Supplements series


Philosophy and Sport brings together the lectures given in the Royal Institute of Philosophy's annual lecture series for 2012-13.

In the Olympic year, it seemed fitting to consider some of the many philosophical and ethical questions raised by sport, and to bring together contributors from both philosophical and sporting worlds.

This ground-breaking volume considers many different areas connected to sport and its practice.

These include the watching of sport, drugs in sport, the Olympic spirit, sport and risk, sport as a moral practice, rivalry and glory in sport and the importance of sport in human life more generally.
