Chair: Dr Shahidha Bari

Recorded on 4 June 2018 at Old Theatre, Old Building

‘All that I know most surely about morality and obligations, I owe to football’, observed Albert Camus. And it is football, above all other sports, that so many philosophers revere. So there’s everything to play for in this panel discussion exploring the relationship between football and philosophy. We give it 110% in our exploration of what makes for a ‘good game’ and whether philosophical principles can be put into play on the pitch.

Gerald Moore is Associate Professor of French, University of Durham.
