Addressing both collegiate and professional sports, the updated edition of Fair Play: The Ethics of Sport explores the ethical presuppositions of competitive athletics and their connection both to ethical theory and to concrete moral dilemmas that arise in actual athletic competition. This fourth edition has been updated with new examples, including a discussion of Spygate by the New England Patriots and recent discoveries on the use of performance enhancing drugs by top athletes. Two additional authors, Cesar R. Torres and Peter F. Hager, bring to this edition a discussion of the moral issues involved in youth sports and the ethics of being a fan, as well as a fresh perspective on the theories of broad internalism and the quest for excellence. Furthermore, major criticisms of broad internalism by philosophers William J. Morgan and Scott Kretchmar add a new dimension to the discussion on the moral foundations of winning.

Review:

Praise for the fourth edition:

"It is a great work of scholarship: thorough, well-thought out, very well organized, very respectful of athletes & non-athletes alike. Pitches to a broad audience, very accessible. Even when the topics are philosophically meaty, Simon, Torres, and Hager are patient with taking sufficiently long enough for a clear explanation. I believe the book encourages civil, reflective, engaged discussion. It is extremely relevant to modern U.S. society, particularly when including the commercialization of sport and even a small section on business ethics."
Catherine Sherron, Thomas More College

"Simon, Torres, and Hager meticulously detail important ethical concepts without sacrificing appeal to a more general sport-loving audience. The book also strikes a nice balance between theory and application. Where other books attempt to balance theory and application by equally dividing up the content into categories of theory and applied cases, Fair Play thoughtfully addresses applied cases in tandem with more theoretical considerations. This blended approach is, in my mind, an excellent example of how philosophy ought to be performed, and is one reason why I choose this book. It is an excellent model for both beginning and advanced philosophy students alike."
Joan Grassbaugh Forry, University of Southern California

Praise for prior editions:

"This third edition of Fair Play is like those that preceded it—accessible, intelligent, persuasive, and well written. But Professor Simon has improved the book by including new information, most notably on the issues of genetic enhancement and intercollegiate athletic reform. Now, more than ever before, Fair Play stands out as the premier text in the area."
Scott Kretchmar, Pennsylvania State University

"Robert Simon's new edition of Fair Play is, simply put, the best book of its kind in the literature. The new section on genetic enhancement and the expanded section on the moral quandaries of intercollegiate sports are welcome, not to mention timely, additions. What's more, the book is a compelling read, free of jargon, persuasively argued, and teeming with incisive commentary."
William Morgan, University of Southern California
