Contemporary Athletics & Ancient Greek Ideals
University of Chicago Press

This chapter examines philosopher Randolph Feezell's book Sport, Play, and Ethical Reflection. It explains that the key insight in Feezell is that Aristotelian moderation provides the best clue we are likely to get regarding how to philosophically assess contemporary athletics. The chapter argues in defense of Feezell's view that the main virtue required of an athlete, sportsmanship, ought to be seen along with other understandably well-known virtues such as justice and courage.

Keywords:   Sport, Play, Ethical Reflection, Randolph Feezell, Aristotelian moderation, contemporary athletics, sportsmanship, justice, courage
