Revista de Filosofía (Madrid) 40 (1):139-156 (2015)

The main goal of this paper is to argue that Anglo-American philosophy and Continental philosophy should work together within the arena of the philosophy of sport. To do so, the concept “communicative community”, which is found in Habermas’ and Apel’s discursive ethics, will be analyzed and applied to sports. As several authors, such as Raúl Sebastian Solanes, Robert L. Simon and William J. Morgan, have done this task before, I will critically analyze their proposals. In so doing, I will show that in order to make sense of contemporary sports we need a more integrative communicative sporting community than the ones proposed so far in the literature
