The longest publishing journal in sport philosophy and the only journal devoted to addressing the full range of philosophical issues in sport, the Journal of the Philosophy of Sport (JPS) publishes articles and reviews related to the philosophical exploration of sport concepts and the vital role sport plays in contemporary society. JPS also publishes work on games, play, dance, embodiment, and other motor-related activities. The journal encourages diversity in its approach and publishes articles in both the analytic and continental tradition, as well as those influenced by such antirealist philosophers as Rorty and MacIntyre.
JPS is also published in a digital format, providing online subscribers with the same authoritative content of the print edition but with additional advantages, such as the ability to search entire issues in seconds and access to back issues. The content of the online version of JPS is available weeks before the print version arrives by mail, and online subscribers can receive each issue's table of contents by e-mail when a new issue is published.
