    Sports Commerce and Peace: The Special Case of the Special Olympics.Ginger Smith, Andrea Cahn & Sybil Ford - 2009 - Journal of Business Ethics 89 (S4):587 - 602.
    Today's sports commerce not only expands the number of international mega-sports events but also increases their value in effecting social change and promoting world peace. As athletes and spectators come together in ever-larger numbers, governments must collaborate with non-governmental, private, and non-profit sectors to develop and implement the business of sports commerce benefiting host nations and local communities. This research identifies the relationship between sports commerce and peace as worthy of greater study. This article examines the role of international sporting (...)

    The Ancient Olympics.Nigel Spivey & University of Cambridge - 2005 - Oxford University Press.
    The word 'athletics' is derived from the Greek verb 'to struggle for a prize'. After reading this book, no one will see the Olympics as a graceful display of Greek beauty again, but as war by other means. Nigel Spivey paints a portrait of the Greek Olympics as they really were - fierce contests between bitter rivals, in which victors won kudos and rewards, and losers faced scorn and even assault. Victory was almost worth dying for, and a (...)

    Ethics, the Olympics and the Search for Global Values.Milton-Smith John - 2002 - Journal of Business Ethics 35 (2):131 - 142.
    The backlash against the Olympic Games reflects the failure of the major global institutions in dealing with the social and ethical consequences of globalisation in areas such as the environment, poverty, terrorism and natural disasters. Disillusionment with the Olympic Games mirrors the disenchantment with the perceived values of globalisation, including winning at any price, commercial exploitation by MNCs, intense national rivalry, cronyism, cheating and corruption and the competitive advantage of advanced nations. How could the Olympic Movement reverse this perception? The (...)

    The Moral Pathologies of National Sporting Representation at the Olympics.Hywel Iorwerth, Carwyn Jones & Alun Hardman - 2012 - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 6 (2):267-288.
    Nationality, citizenship and eligibility have become increasingly relevant in sport, especially under current conditions where there is an increasing number of players who change their ?allegiances? for international sporting purposes. While it is reasonable to link such trends to wider processes of globalisation and accelerated migratory flows, it is also evident that national sporting representation is subject to the venal power of commercialism. The concern is that national representation has developed into a more strategic, planned and economically driven activity that (...)

    Theology at the Olympics: St Louis 1904 and London 2012.Mark Chapman - 2013 - Journal for the History of Modern Theology/Zeitschrift für Neuere Theologiegeschichte 20 (2):258-277.
    This paper contrasts the London Olympics of 2012 with the St Louis Games of 1904 in the context of their cultural and historical context, especially the World’s Fair. What I suggest is that the 1904 World’s Fair, with its supporting academic congress at which Adolf von Harnack and Ernst Troeltsch lectured, played a modest part in the early phases of the deabsolutization of western culture, together with the Christianity upon which it was constructed. Despite the widespread patronizing and racialist (...)

  7. Chinese Subjectivities and the Beijing Olympics.Gladys Pak Lei Chong - 2016 - Rowman & Littlefield International.
    Chinese Subjectivity and the Beijing Olympics develops the Foucauldian concept of productive power through examining the ways in which the Chinese government tried to mobilize the population to embrace its Olympic project through deploying various sets of strategies and tactics.

    The Mathematical Intelligencer Flunks the Olympics.Alexander E. Gutman, Mikhail G. Katz, Taras S. Kudryk & Semen S. Kutateladze - 2017 - Foundations of Science 22 (3):539-555.
    The Mathematical Intelligencer recently published a note by Y. Sergeyev that challenges both mathematics and intelligence. We examine Sergeyev’s claims concerning his purported Infinity computer. We compare his grossone system with the classical Levi-Civita fields and with the hyperreal framework of A. Robinson, and analyze the related algorithmic issues inevitably arising in any genuine computer implementation. We show that Sergeyev’s grossone system is unnecessary and vague, and that whatever consistent subsystem could be salvaged is subsumed entirely within a stronger and (...)

    Sex, Vagueness, and the Olympics.Helen L. Daly - 2015 - Hypatia 30 (4):708-724.
    Sex determines much about one's life, but what determines one's sex? The answer is complicated and incomplete: on close examination, ordinary notions of female and male are vague. In 2012, the International Olympic Committee further specified what they mean by woman in response to questions about who, exactly, is eligible to compete in women's Olympic events. I argue, first, that their stipulation is evidence that the use of vague terms is better described by semantic approaches to vagueness than by epistemic (...)

    Greek Exercises: The Modern Olympics as Hellenic Appropriation and Reinvention.Louis A. Ruprecht - 2008 - Thesis Eleven 93 (1):72-87.
    `From Aristotle to Us', the conference held at La Trobe University in May 2007, names a powerful and highly influential Romantic trajectory, one which posits a particular conception of the ancients, a particular conception of the moderns, and a complex conception of the relationship between the two. Using the modern Olympic Revival as a case study and a case in point, this article argues that such `exercises' in Greek appropriation always operate with largely unstated assumptions about the nature of the (...)

    Zur Zahlungsbereitschaft Für Nationale Sporterfolge Bei den Olympischen Sommerspielen 2016 – Eine Schätzung Unter Anwendung der Kontingenten Bewertungsmethode / On the Willingness to Pay for National Success at the 2016 Summer Olympics – an Estimation Using the Contingent Valuation Method. [REVIEW]Jens Flatau & Finja Rohkohl - 2014 - Sport Und Gesellschaft 11 (2):105-129.
    Zusammenfassung Das Ziel der vorliegenden Untersuchung ist es, die Zahlungsbereitschaft der deutschen Haushalte für Medaillenerfolge zu ermitteln. Hierzu wurden 332 deutsche Haushalte eines Online-Panels unter Verwendung der Kontingenten Bewertungsmethode befragt. Demnach wären 22,9 % der Befragten bereit, für die Förderung des Spitzensports mehr Steuern zu zahlen. Im Falle aller zahlungsbereiten bzw. zahlungsneutralen Personen liegt der Mittelwert der Zahlungsbereitschaft bei 6,86€. Die regressionsanalytischen Ergebnisse zeigen, dass der individuelle und der gesellschaftliche Nutzen sowie die wahrgenommene Schuldenlast Deutschlands einen signifikanten Einfluss auf die (...)

    Marathon, Parade Und Olympiade: Zur Festivalisierung Und Eventisierung der Postindustriellen Stadt / Marathon, Parade, and the Olympics: Thoughts on the Festival- and Event Management of the Post-Industrial City.Gabriele Klein - 2004 - Sport Und Gesellschaft 1 (3):269-280.
    Zusammenfassung Der Text zielt auf eine stadtsoziologische Fundierung aktueller urbaner Bewegungskulturen. Die gängige Annahme sportsoziologischer Befunde ist, jugendliche Bewegungskulturen als Phänomen der Großstadt oder als eine Gegenbewegung zu der Funktionalität der modernern Städte auszuweisen. Demgegenüber wird hier die These entfaltet, dass die postindustrielle Stadt für die Eventisierung und Festivalisierung der Bewegungs- und Sportkulturen erst die sozialräumlichen Bedingungen bereit gestellt hat. Zentrale Vorgänge waren hierbei die Theatralisierung und Musealisierung des öffentlichen Raumes sowie die ästhetische Umdeutung des spezifisch modernen Konzeptes einer normativen (...)

  38. Why China Should Not Get the 2008 Olympics.A. C. Grayling - manuscript
    When the International Olympic Committee meets in Moscow this weekend to choose a host city for the 2008 Games, the front-runner will be China's capital Beijing. Its main rivals are Toronto and Paris, but Canada and France have twice hosted winter or summer Games. In addition, the IoC's retiring President, Juan Antonio Samaranch, is a keen supporter of China's bid, and was disappointed when Sydney beat Beijing for the 2000 Games by just two votes. As his last presidential act he (...)

    In 2007, Oscar Pistorius, a South African sprinter, was training and competing in preparation for the 2008 Beijing Olympic trials. Having had double transtibial amputations when he was eleven months old, Pistorius runs on technologically advanced prosthetics known as "Cheetah" legs. In January 2008, the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) ruled him ineligible for IAAF competitions (including the Olympics) on the grounds that these carbon-fiber blade prosthetics were technical devices that gave him an advantage over other able-bodied sprinters.

  50. Should Oscar Pistorius Be Excluded From the 2008 Olympic Games?S. D. Edwards - 2008 - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 2 (2):112 – 125.
    This paper discusses the predicament of Oscar Pistorius. He is a Paralympic gold medallist who wishes to participate in the Olympics in Beijing in 2008. Following a brief introductory section, the paper discusses the arguments that could be, and have been, deployed against his participation in the Olympics, should he make the qualifying time for his chosen event (400m). The next section discusses a more hypothetical argument based upon a specific understanding of the fair opportunity rule. According to (...)
