The challenges of modern sport to ethics : from doping to cyborgs

This book could appeal to the reader who wants to enter the field of 'official sport philosophy' but it is also interesting for those who are already part of the discussion and are looking for new arguments and points of view. In this sense, the book is written in a way that can perfectly be used by begginers in the topic, but can also be useful in discussions among researchers.

  • ""The Challenges of Modern Sport to Ethics: From Doping to Cyborgs provides a wide overview of key ethical matters in the philosophy of sport: What is fair play? Is strategic fouling legitimate? What is the role of cheating and gamesmanship in sport? What can be said about doping and physical enhancement? How can we approach gender issues that come from the core of the practice of sport? Does sport share any common characteristics, or even roots, with racism, violence, or nationalism? Should cyborg-athletes compete in equal conditions with "organic" athletes? What can we do with new technologies in sport? Jose Luis Perez Trivino analyzes major topics and key authors in contemporary sport philosophy and approaches each of them directly and personally.""
