Sport as form of moral education. Can Sport make us Good?

In this video, Dr David Webster asks Dr Emily Ryall whether sport can feature in our moral education – whether it contributes to character formation. In short – can sport make us good?

This video really just acts as a starting point – and there are some very complex and substantial issues to explore in Sports ethics. A good place to read up on these – with lots of topical material – is the ‘Sports Ethicist’ blog which you can find at http://sportsethicist.com/

Dr Ryall teaches at the Oxstalls campus of the University of Gloucestershire, and is Senior Lecturer in the Philosophy of Sport.

You can find her blog at http://emilyryall.net – and you can find her on twitter as @emilyryall (Dave is also on there as @davidwebster)
