Abstract: This book provides students with a thorough, clear, and practical introduction to the philosophy of physical activity and sport, and in doing so, prepares them for the ethical questions they will face as professionals. This second edition has been significantly revised, and it has been enhanced to include the following features: expanded instruction on practical ethics in physical activity, guiding students in how to rank values and turn those values into actions; new material that emphasizes physical activity as well as sport, and provides specific holistic techniques for the practitioner in the workplace; and in-depth case studies along with discussion questions that can be used to teach students how to follow a philosophical argument and come to their own conclusions.
