Sport : a philosophic inquiry by Paul Weiss( )

20 editions published between 1969 and 1985 in 3 languages and held by 2,202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a wide-ranging study, the author applies the principles and methods of philosophy to athletics. Every culture, he notes, has games of some kind; few activities seem to interest both children and young men as much as sports do; and few attract so many spectators, rich and poor. Yet none of the great philosophers, claiming to take all knowledge and being as their province, have made more than a passing reference to sport, in part, the author suggests, because they thought that what pleased the vulgar was not worth sustained study by the leisured. This book explores new paths : psychological and sociological forms of human behavior exhibited in games; the physiology of athletics, and the efforts of training and conditioning; and the motivation of athletics--the rhythm and aims of contests and games, and the meaning of team play. The author discusses at length such topics as the Olympic Games and men and women as amateur and professional athletes--and their sacrifices, defeats, and humiliations. And he delineates the stages the athlete must go through in his progress toward self-completion

Surrogates by Paul Weiss( )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 743 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Surrogates introduces an important new philosophical topic: the pervasive ways that things stand for one another in nature and human experience. Going beyond semiotic theory, Paul Weiss interprets surrogacy in terms of metaphysical, epistemological, ethical, and religious dimensions of life, integrating the concept into a systematic way of regarding reality. Just as philosophy brings to the issue of surrogate reality a systematic set of questions, Weiss's investigation of the topic raises new questions for philosophy itself, manifesting his great concern for philosophy's freedom and creativity. The author concludes each chapter with an imaginative set of questions and answers that engage imagined critics in a dialogue."--Jacket
