    Playing to Win Vs. Playing for Meaningful Victories.Stephen J. Laumakis, Peter A. Laumakis & Paul J. Laumakis - 2017 - Journal of the Philosophy of Sport 44 (2):174-182.
    John Laumakis has offered a thought-provoking, but ultimately unpersuasive argument in favor of playing to your opponent’s strength instead of playing to their weakness.

One of many philosophical problems faced by these philosophers, however, is to explain how these distinct simultaneously presented sensible aspects are subjectively and objectively cognized as belonging to the same particular object.
