Posted on August 28, 2017


Here is an announcement with an looming deadline, snipped from the Philosophy of Sport blog. Submit your abstract then dress up as a grasshopper for Halloween. (In-joke. The academic philosopher, the late Bernard Suits, wrote the most widely discussed philosophical book on the definition of “a game” — The Grasshopper: Games, Life, and Utopia which has been discussed in This Sporting Life here, among other places.)
