The Bloomsbury Companion to the Philosophy of Sport
Edited by César Torres, College at Brockport faculty member.
Includes a chapter by former College at Brockport faculty member Scott Kretchmar: Research Methodology. The Philosophy of Sport and Analytic Philosophy.
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.
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.
Also features 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.
