PHIL 1912: Sports, Reason, and Society

3 CreditsFreshman Seminar

Sports constitute both a pervasive institution in our society as well as a source of interesting philosophical issues. In this course we investigate various topics within and related to sports using philosophical and logical methods. Among the topics that we consider are the following: the insights that statistics and inductive logic bring to sports analysis; controversies surrounding performance enhancement, cheating, and the nature of rules; the ethics of sports consumption; and issues related to sex and gender that arise in competition.
