NYC Alumni Association - Alumni Colleges
You are cordially invited to join members of the Metropolitan New York Alumni Association for an Alumni College Lecture Series featuring Robert Simon, professor of philosophy. Bob's topic is “The Internal Values of Sport: Resolving Ethical Controversies in Sport” His presentation is Thursday, March 25 at The Williams Club on 24 East 39th Street between Park and Madison Avenues. A reception will be held at 6:30 p.m. with a lecture to follow at 7:30 p.m. The cost is $19 per person ($15 for the Classes of 1999-2003)

Professor Simon will raise the following questions of controversy: Is it unethical for athletes to use performance enhancing drugs? Is breaking the rules of the game to gain an advantage really permissible? What is sportsmanship? What are the moral obligations of participants in competitive athletics to their opponents? While some writers argue that whatever values are found in sport only reflect the values found throughout the broader culture, application of theories found in jurisprudence and philosophy of law suggest that there are defensible values internal to sport which can help resolve ethical controversies that arise in the world of sport. Professor Simon will develop this thesis and defend it against both those who argue that there is no universal understanding of “sport” and that values only reflect the conventions of particular communities or cultural perspectives.
