9780419253709: Values in Sport: Elitism, Nationalism, Gender Equality and the Scientific Manufacturing of Winners (Ethics and Sport)

How will sport keep pace with current scientific and biological advances?
Is the possibility of the 'bionic athlete' that far away and is this notion as bad as it might first appear?
Is our fascination with sport winners fascistoid? Questions such as these and many others are posed and examined by the contributors to this volume. Some are sceptical of future developments in sport and demand radical reforms to halt progress, others are more optimistic and propose that sport should adapt to new advances just as other realms of the cultural sphere have to.
Some of the topics examined here, such as the genetic engineering of athletes, and the significance of the public's fascination with sport winners, are being discussed for the first time, whilst others such as sex segregation, nationalism and doping are being revisited and reintroduced onto the agenda after a period of suggestive silence.
This book provides the reader with a deep insight into the moral and ethical value we place on sport in today's society. Challenging and demanding, its contributors urge us to think again about current sports practices and the future of sport as a cultural phenomenon.

About the Author:

Claudio Tamburrini is a Senior Researcher at the Department of Philosophy, Stockholm University and the author of several international articles on issues of penal philosophy and sport philosophy.
Torbjörn Tännsjö is Professor of Practical Philosophy at Stockholm University and has published extensively on moral philosophy, political philosophy and medical ethics.

Review:

This anthology of fifteen original articles examines the future of sports as a cultural phenomenon. It addresses five areas that shape sports now and for the future: elitism, nationalism, gender equality, the rules of the game, and the infusion of science in sports-drugs and genetic manipulation. What binds the articles in this collection is that sport as a cultural phenomenon has moral significance, and its future depends on understanding this. ...provocative, original, and thought-provoking articles, a must read for anyone interested in the ethics of sports.
