Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This collection of incisive articles gives a leading team of international philosophers a free kick toward exploring the complex and often hidden contours of the world of soccer. What does it really mean to be a fan (and why should we count Aristotle as one)? Why do great players such as Cristiano Ronaldo count as great artists (up there alongside Picasso, one author argues)? From the ethics of refereeing to the metaphysics of bent (like Beckham) space-time, this book shows soccer fans and philosophy buffs alike new ways to appreciate and understand the world's favorite sport.

Book News Annotation:

Richards (philosophy, U. of Tennessee, Knoxville) assembles 31 essays by philosophers and non-philosophers from around the world who consider philosophical aspects of soccer. They consider such topics as why the game is fascinating; concepts like miracles, luck, team spirit, morality, rationality, virtue, identity, aesthetics, beauty, and life; connections to the ideas of Nietzsche, Aristotle, Plato, Picasso, Kant, and Kierkegaard; and aspects related to players and referees.
