Review quote

"Sport, Play, and Ethical Reflection develops an interesting and thought-provoking 'ironic' view of sport as 'absurd.' This is a clear and illuminating work from a philosopher and an athlete who knows his subjects."-- Sigmund Loland, professor at the Norwegian University for Sport and Physical Education "Feezell's Sport, Play, and Ethical Reflection offers an insightful treatment of central issues in the philosophy of sport. It is a significant addition to the critical literature that does much to correct the overemphasis on sport for the sake of external commercial rewards, entertainment, and winning at any cost. This book is both at intellectually serious--sure to be widely discussed among scholars--while remaining accessible, clear, and easy to follow." -- Robert Simon, Professor of Philosophy, Hamilton Collegeshow more
