An Introduction to the Philosophy of Physical Education and Sport.
Osterhoudt, Robert G.
This text offers an introductory account of the philosophy of physical education and sport. It begins with an examination of the nature, significance, and method of philosophy and major philosophic concepts and issues. It passes on to an account of the concepts and issues of the philosophy of physical education and sport which shows the historical development and basic character of the discipline, and it catalogs and abstracts contributions to its literature. The text then turns to a less direct treatment of the major philosophic systems, periods, and figures, and their implications for physical education and sport. The volume concludes with some reflections on consensus which attempt to demonstrate the unity of disparate insights. The appendixes include a bibliography and abstracts of selected works. (MM)
