Description - Values in Sport by Claudio Tamburrini
How will sport keep pace with current scientific and biological advances? Is the possibility of the "bionic athlete" that far away and is this notion as bad as it might first appear? Questions such as these and many others are posed and examined by the contributors to this volume. Some are sceptical of future developments in sport and demand radical reforms to halt progress, others are more optimistic and propose that sport should adapt to new advances just as other realms of the cultural sphere have to. This book provides the reader with an insight into the moral and ethical value we place on sport in today's society. Challenging and demanding, its contributors urge us to think again about current sports practices and the future of sport as a cultural phenomenon.
