Book Description

This new four-volume collection from Routledge includes the key articles, book chapters, and other essays in the philosophy of sport. It covers different areas of philosophy (e.g. ethics, metaphysics); different enduring topics (e.g. what counts as fair play, whether sport can be defined or not); different time periods (early 'classic' articles and more modern contributions); cross-cultural perspectives (authors from around the world); and a topically diverse subject matter (including the phenomena of sport, games, play, embodiment, and the like).

Designed to acquaint new students and more advanced researchers with the best literature available, as well as a synopsis of what has attracted philosophic attention, what is known, and what is still being analysed, the collection will also help readers draw conclusions about what lies ahead in the philosophy of sport. Including a new introduction by the editors and fully indexed, this ‘mini-library’ of the very best and most influential writings on the philosophy of sport is destined to be valued by researchers and students as an essential work of reference.
