SM 218 - Philosophy and Sport

The relationship between sport and ethics is as strong today as it was during the festivals of the earliest cultures. Lovers of art, music, science, and literature often use athletic endeavors to explain the joy and sorrow they experience in their lives. In this course, sport will be closely examined in relation to our parallel lives by using “great ideas” to bridge some of the gaps between the way we think, know, and feel. The sporting context will be utilized to examine moral issues such as cheating, relational justice, and technological relativity. Metaphysical concepts relating to mind and body synthesis and divergence will be explored. Satisfies the Arts and Humanities and Writing Designated core requirements.
