This book contains an international collection of essays by
leading philosophers of sport on the ethics and philosophy of the
Olympic Games. The essays consider a range of topics including
critical reflections on nationalism and internationalism within the
Olympic movement, sexism in Olympic marketing and sponsorship, the
preservation and corruption of Olympism, the underlying ideology of
the Olympic Games, the inequalities of perception in ability and
disability as it informs our understanding of the Olympic and
Paralympic Games, and comparisons between ancient and modern
interpretations of the meaning and significance of the Olympic
Games. This book will be of interest to historians, philosophers,
and sociologists of sports, as well as to the sporting public who
simply want to know more about the grounding ideas behind the
greatest show on earth.
This book was originally published as a special issue of Sport,
Ethics and Philosophy.
