Price: Free
This book takes football and its surrounding myths and milieus as a legitimate occasion for reflections on life and living. It taps into the enormous energy and emotions that are expended on football throughout the world. Football is a truly cultural phenomenon that generates as much passion and politics as almost any other activity. Accordingly, this book is an attempt to demonstrate that football is much more than ‘only a game’; it is a compelling medium through which to illustrate how our understandings of rules, fairness and good living affect our understanding of football and, in turn, how football influences our larger understandings about rules, fairness, and good living. Football is as good a place to look (and probably better than most) to address and answer the big stuff that first got Plato and Aristotle going -- “what is the right way to conduct our lives?”
