Abstract:

The Fight for the Moral Soul of Modern Sport: Dueling Amateur and -- Professional Conceptions of Sport in the Early Modern Olympic Games, 1896- -- Formalism and Sport -- Broad Internalism, Moral Realism, and Sport: The Metaphysical Version -- Broad Internalism, Moral Realism, and Sport: The Discourse Version -- What A Conventionalist Ethical Theory of Sport Doesn't Look Like: -- The Case Against Coordinating, Deep, and Constitutive (Surface) Conventions -- A Conventionalist Ethical Theory of Sport -- Sport, Moral Progress, and Moral Entrepreneurs.
