9781472924087: The Bloomsbury Companion to the Philosophy of Sport (Bloomsbury Companions)

The Bloomsbury Companion to the Philosophy of Sport features specially commissioned essays from a team of leading international scholars. The book, by providing an overview of the advances in the philosophical understanding of sport (and related practices), serves as a measure of the development of the philosophy of sport but it also constitutes an expression of the discipline's state of the art. The book includes a critical analysis of the historical development of philosophic ideas about sport, three essays on the research methods typically used by sport philosophers, twelve essays that address vital issues at the forefront of key research areas, as well as four essays on topics of future disciplinary concern. The book also includes a glossary of key terms and concepts, an essay on resources available to researchers and practitioners, an essay on careers opportunities in the discipline, and an extensive annotated bibliography of key literature.

Review:

“Drawing on the very best scholars, this volume provides the intellectual foundations for a philosophy of sport from four major intellectual philosophical traditions - the Analytic, the Continental, the Eastern and Pragmatism. This volume is essential reading for anyone desiring a comprehensive philosophical understanding of the phenomenon that plays such a major part of our lives.” ―

“This excellent collection of specially written articles is organized in a n innovative way, combining a comprehensive account of the history and the research methodology of the philosophy of sport with the critical reflections on current theoretical issues and future developments in the area.” ―

“The Bloomsbury Companion to the Philosophy of Sport is an excellent resource for libraries, students and scholars who want to learn about the discipline from a single source.” ―Morningside College, Iowa, USA

“The appearance of this book in the Bloomsbury "Companion" series, a multivolume project that includes works on philosophy of language, mind, and science, confirms philosophy of sport as a mature discipline. With 49 contributors from around the world, it is comprehensive in subject matter and attention to issues of research methodology [...] The articles are, without exception, clearly written and interesting to read. A glossary, resource guide, and analysis of career options add to the book's usefulness. Heavily footnoted, with a good index and annotated bibliography, this book is a valuable resource for researchers and teachers, among others. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division undergraduates and above; general readers.” ―CHOICE
