Pressestimmen

"An engaging entr?e into philosophy through basketball, the philosophy of basketball, and philosophical issues particular to basketball. This is fun philosophy!" -- Kelly James Clark, coeditor of Human Nature in Chinese and Western Culture

"The essays in this collection do a terrific job of demonstrating how one can glean genuine philosophical insights through reflection on sport." -- "Aeon J. Skoble, co-editor of Woody Allen and Philosophy: You Mean My Whole Fall"

"A remarkably profound and wide-ranging collection. Cerebral fans will love this book." -- "Booklist"

"[T]he simple American game splayed with ball and net has prompted some deep thinking among its players, coaches, and fans... [and] this remarkably profound and wide-ranging collection of essays exposes readers to some of the best of that thinking." -- "Booklist"

"An excellent book. It makes me almost believe that philosophers can jump and that guys like Shaq can break down philosophical arguments almost as well as defenses." -- "Eric Bronson, editor of Baseball and Philosophy: Thinking Outside the Batter's "

"An engaging entree into philosophy through basketball, the philosophy of basketball, and philosophical issues particular to basketball. This is fun philosophy!" -- "Kelly James Clark, coeditor of Human Nature in Chinese and Western Culture""

"Offers a deeper examination about that connection between what we think, deep down, and what we play, straight up." -- "Lexington Herald-Leader"

"Basketball isn't just about wins and losses, points and turnovers. It's about preparing young athletes for the disappointments and victories that we all experience. Basketball and Philosophy clearly demonstrates that basketball can teach us a lot about life and gives the reader a deeper appreciation of the depth and complexity of this great sport." -- "Mike Krzyzewski, Head Basketball Coach, Duke University & USA National Team"

""Published by the University Press of Kentucky, Basketball and Philosophy is entertaining and thought provoking. Whether you're a basketball fan or a student of philosophy, you must have an appreciation for a book that contains a chapter entitled, 'Plato and Aristotle on the Role of Soul in Taking the Rock to the Hole.'"" -- "Kentucky Monthly"

Synopsis

What can the film "Hoosiers" teach us about the meaning of life? How can ancient Eastern wisdom traditions, such as Taoism and Zen Buddhism, improve our jump-shots? What can the "Zen Master" (Phil Jackson) and the "Big Aristotle" (Shaquille O'Neal) teach us about sustained excellence and success? Is women's basketball "better" basketball? How, ethically, should one deal with a strategic cheater in pickup basketball? With NBA and NCAA team rosters constantly changing, what does it mean to play for the "same team"? What can coaching legends Dean Smith, Rick Pitino, Pat Summitt, and Mike Krzyzewski teach us about character, achievement, and competition? What makes basketball such a beautiful game to watch and play? In "Basketball and Philosophy", a Dream Team of twenty-six academics trained in philosophy - also diehard hoops fans - proves that basketball is the thinking fan's sport. Whether you play basketball, coach it, or just love to watch it, this book will forever enrich your understanding and appreciation of the game. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe.

HASH(0x8a3aa78c) von 5 Sternen Chapters on Hoosiers is worth price of book, so long as is used. 16. Juni 2016

The chapter on Hoosiers is the best. This book is not well-organized, and is not consistent. You can read it in 3-4 hours. It is not deep to say the least. Still, the chapter on Hoosiers is worth the book, assuming you buy it used...
