Soccer and Philosophy : Beautiful Thoughts on the Beautiful Game, Paperback / softback Book

Soccer and Philosophy : Beautiful Thoughts on the Beautiful Game Paperback / softback

Edited by Ted Richards

Part of the Popular Culture and Philosophy series

Description

This collection of incisive articles gives a leading team of international philosophers a free kick toward exploring the complex and often hidden contours of the world of soccer.

What does it really mean to be a fan (and why should we count Aristotle as one)?

Why do great players such as Cristiano Ronaldo count as great artists (up there alongside Picasso, one author argues)?

From the ethics of refereeing to the metaphysics of bent (like Beckham) space-time, this book shows soccer fans and philosophy buffs alike new ways to appreciate and understand the world's favorite sport.
