  1. Beyond Fairness: The Ethics of Inclusion for Transgender and Intersex Athletes.John Gleaves & Tim Lehrbach - 2016 - Journal of the Philosophy of Sport 43 (2):311-326.
    Sporting communities remain entangled in debate over whether and how to include transgender and intersex athletes in competition with cisgender athletes. Of particular concern is that transgender and intersex athletes may have unfair physiological advantages over their cisgender opponents. Arguments for inclusion of transgender and intersex athletes in sport attempt to demonstrate that such inclusion does not threaten the presumed physiological equivalence among competitors and is therefore fair to all. This article argues that the physiological equivalency rationale has significant limitations, (...)

    Sport as Meaningful Narratives.John Gleaves - 2017 - Journal of the Philosophy of Sport 44 (1):29-43.
    Though many scholars have made claims as to the nature of sport, this article argues that these claims tend to narrowly focus on modern ideas derived primarily from Western competitive sport. Thus, most notions of sport fail to capture how various historical and non-Western cultures valued sport. In an attempt to provide a broader and more durable description of the nature of sport, this article argues that sports are fundamentally about telling a story about ourselves. These stories are meaningful narratives. (...)

    Ethics, Nationalism, and the Imagined Community: The Case Against Inter-National Sport.John Gleaves & Matthew Llewellyn - 2014 - Journal of the Philosophy of Sport 41 (1):1-19.
    The focus of this article will be sport predicated on contests between nation-states, or what we will call inter-national sport, at the elite level. While much literature on the politics of sport has focused on the proper role of the nation-state in regards to specific sport issues, few have questioned whether elite sport ought to involve nationalism as part of its competition. Most who have defended such sport argue that the benefits of nationalism and the national identity outweigh any potential (...)

  5. No Harm, No Foul? Justifying Bans On Safe Performance-Enhancing Drugs.John Gleaves - 2010 - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 4 (3):269-283.
    Scholars such as Simon and Loland as well as the authors of the World Anti-Doping Code argue that using performance-enhancing substances is unhealthy and unfairly coercive for other athletes. Critics of the anti-doping position such as Hoberman, Miah et al. and Tamburrini are quick to argue that such prohibitions, even though well-intended, constitute an unjustifiable form of paternalism. However, advocates for both of these positions assume that preserving good health and, conversely, avoiding health-related harms, lie at the centre of the (...)

    Moral Communities in Anti-Doping Policy: A Response to Bowers and Paternoster.Emmanuel Macedo, Matt Englar-Carlson, Tim Lehrbach & John Gleaves - 2017 - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 13 (1):49-61.
    This article argues that Bowers and Paternoster’s emphasis on a moral community marks an important step towards a more ethical and effective approach to anti-doping. However, it also argues that the authors’ proposed strategies undermine their stated goal of effectively engaging athletes as partners in anti-doping efforts and raise ethical concerns. Their proposed emphasis on exploiting shaming as a punishment and their general view of athletes as adversaries fosters mistrust between athletes and those who enforce the anti-doping rules. Instead, this (...)

    Before the Rules Are Written: Navigating Moral Ambiguity in Performance Enhancement.John Gleaves, Matthew P. Llewellyn & Tim Lehrbach - 2014 - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 8 (1):85-99.
    In 1984, a number of US cyclists used blood transfusions to boost their performance at the Los Angeles Olympic Games. The cyclists broke no rules and dominated the Games, yet were later maligned as cheaters and dopers?they had, it seemed, violated some important norm, albeit one which was neither an official rule nor otherwise easily identifiable. Their case illustrates the moral ambiguity that arises when a performance enhancement is employed in a sport that has not addressed it. This article takes (...)

    If You’Re Not First, You’Re Last: Are the Empirical Premises Correct in the Ethics of Anti-Doping?Werner Pitsch & John Gleaves - forthcoming - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy:1-12.
    In the ethical discussion of anti-doping, a number of normative arguments rely on empirical premises. The truth of these premises, however, often remains unverified. This article identifies several...
