This book compares two major leisure activities – watching sport and engaging with art. It explores a range of philosophical questions that arise when sport and art are placed side by side:

  • The works of Shakespeare, Rembrandt and Mozart have continued to fill playhouses, galleries and concert halls for centuries since they were created, while our interest in even the most epic sporting contests fades after just a few years, or even a single season. What explains this difference?
  • Sporting contests are merely games. So why do sports fans attach such great importance to whether their team wins or loses?
  • Do sporting contests have meaning in the way works of art do?
  • Beauty is a central value in art. Is it important in sport?
  • What role does morality play in sport and art?
  • What value do sport and art contribute to the world and to the meaning of people’s lives?

Paul Taylor taught philosophy for over twenty years at the University of Cape Town, South Africa, where he was head of the Philosophy Department for a number of years. He has contributed to numerous academic journals and handbooks, mainly in the areas of philosophy of mind and aesthetics. A lifelong interest in sport has led him to focus in recent years on the philosophy of sport.
