Since I teach several sport-related courses at ASU, this page has general information on those courses. (ASU students should check Class Search for semester specific information)
A study of moral issues in sports, including but not limited to the nature and application of sportsmanship, the prohibition of performance enhancing drugs, ethical issues in the economics of sports, the role of violence, and fandom.

PHI 371: Philosophy of Sport
An inquiry into philosophical issues in sport. Topics and readings will vary, but may include: the nature and definition of sport, an examination of the main theories of sport, metaphysical and epistemological issues, and the aesthetics of sport. Since PHI 370 Sports Ethics examines ethical issues in sport, this course will not primarily deal with ethical issues.

An inquiry into the philosophical principles and themes embodied in the ancient and modern Olympic Games and Olympic Movement. Topics and readings will vary, but may include: Olympism as philosophy; Ancient Greek conceptions of the connections between human excellence, human flourishing, and athletics; the role of nationalism, peace, and politics in the Olympics.
