This is an advanced philosophy course designed to illustrate the point that philosophical reflection is present in our daily experiences, which we may consider nonintellectual. This course will take up the related themes of sports, athletics, and play, in order to show that an adequate understanding of them requires philosophical understanding. Topics will include the social significance of sports, ethical issues in sports, sports and race, mind and body in sports, sports and aesthetics, gender in sports. Advanced reading and writing skills will help to succeed in this course. Taking a lower level philosophy course or ENG* 101  would be helpful before taking this course.
