Drugs in sport: A philosophical challenge

Philosophy 81 (318):559-560 (2006)

Anthony O'hear
University of Buckingham
There is certainly a strong feeling against the use of drugs in sport, even though many sportsmen and women use them and many more undoubtedly would if they thought they could get away with it. In face of what actually goes on in far too many locker rooms, the efforts of sports authorities to stem the use of drugs can seem futile as well as all too often petty and misguided in practice
