The neuroscientist Jay Schulkin argues that biology and culture do more than coexist when we play sports--they blend together seamlessly, propelling each other toward greater physical and intellectual achievement.
In this volume, contributors from Australia, Ireland, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States analyze the transformation in the field of sport history, showing the ways powerful digital tools raise vital philosophical, epistemological, ontological, methodological, and ethical questions for scholars and students alike.
From the journal: "Physical Culture and Sport. Studies and Research is directed to the representatives of the social sciences of sport (philosophers, sociologists, pedagogues, managers of sport, and theoreticians of sport from particular or general point of view)."
From the journal: "The Open Sports Sciences Journal is an Open Access online journal which publishes research articles, reviews/mini-reviews, letters, and guest edited single topic issues in all areas of sports sciences, such as anthropology, biochemistry, biomechanics, epidemiology, growth and motor development, motor control and learning, measurement and evaluation, physiology, pedagogy, psychology, history, philosophy or sociology."
Written from the contrasting yet complementary perspectives of sociology and philosophy, this book explores the far-reaching ethical consequences of the runaway commodification of sport, focusing on those instances where commodification gives rise to morally undesirable consequences.
"Practical Philosophy of Sport helps readers develop professional reasoning skills, find answers to their philosophic questions, and form a personal philosophy of physical education, sport, and exercise science."--
Sport, Philosophy, and Good Lives discusses sport in the context of several traditional philosophical questions, including: What is a good human life and how does sport factor into it? To whom do we look for ethical guidance? What makes human activities or projects meaningful?
