The Ethics of Sport

Essential Readings

Edited by Arthur L. Caplan and Brendan Parent

  • Collects articles promoting applied ethics in sports from authors in a variety of disciplines
  • Instead of showcasing philosophers who offer their own ethical analyses of sports issues, provides ethical frameworks and guiding questions in the chapter introductions that readers can use to inform their own conclusions
  • Addresses topics including the following: What is wrong with college athletics? Do athletes assume the risk of concussions? Is it ethical to use animals in sports? Should we genetically enhance ourselves to be faster and stronger?
