Philosophy and Sport

Date and time

Thursday, May 11 ยท 2 – 3pm

What is the point of playing or engaging in sport? Sport has a lot of ties to our physical, social, and psychological lives. It crosses our everyday experiences whether we participate in it or not. We will raise some of the questions that surround sport, such as what constitutes a sporting environment, what the distinctive value of sport is, and how ethics, aesthetics, and knowledge about ourselves and the world can impact our sporting endeavours. This short talk will introduce you to some philosophical aspects of sport. I hope you will reflect on, and share, your own experiences of sport and its effects on your life.

This event is for u3a members only.
