Free Book of the Month: August

August is here at last! Maybe that means we’ll soon have a reprieve from all this heat, but really the only question on people’s minds really is: Are you ready for some football? The coming of fall months (and weather) brings dreams of gridiron glory back to life, and while the players are working hard to get ready for the start of the season and picking out the best song to run out of the tunnel to, you can sign up for the August Free Book of the Month!

Football and Philosophy: Going Deep

Football and Philosophy: Going Deep investigates many of the issues surrounding the nation’s biggest sport. From a review of the flaws of the Bowl Championship Series, to a study of the violence inherent in the game, to an examination of Vince Lombardi’s views on winning, the essays in this collection tackle the moral and philosophical principles behind gridiron competition. The result is an insightful, humorous, and original book that will engage all fans of the game.

“A brilliant collection of essays, engaging in philosophical reflection on issues and arguments that arise in American football. The essays are insightful and informative, as well as provocative and entertaining. A deeply satisfying read.”—Charles Taliaferro, author of Consciousness and the Mind of God
