Description:

"Practical Philosophy of Sport is a breakthrough in introductory sport philosophy texts. It's readable, easy-to-understand, and excellent for helping students and professionals in physical education, sport, and exercise science develop values and ethics to guide their careers. The book demystifies philosophy and shows that it can be a useful tool for solving daily professional problems. The text encourages readers to move beyond just reading about or passively listening to philosophy and invites them to "do" it." "Practical Philosophy of Sport helps readers develop professional reasoning skills, find answers to their philosophic questions, and form a personal philosophy of physical education, sport, and exercise science."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
