Description

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.show more

Review quote

The first book in English by Professor Perez Trivino is very much welcomed. The Challenges of Modern Sport to Ethics: From Doping to Cyborgs examines some of the most pressing current ethical challenges in sport as well as those looming on the athletic horizon. At the same time, it manifests the challenges that sport poses to ethical thinking. Perez Trivino writes clearly and his arguments are as rigorous as they are thought-provoking. This book is of value to established scholars and could serve as an engaging reading assignment in both graduate and undergraduate classrooms. -- Cesar R. Torres, State University of New Yorkshow more
