About this blog

  • Thinking Ethics was a project launched in Geneva to foster the debate about ethics. A few friends, fed up with only reading about abuses in the media, decided to hold a forward-looking seminar on five subjects: ethics and performance, ethics and knowledge, ethics and consciousness, ethics and disobedience and ethics in real time. If moral has to do with right and wrong, then ethics is its application in society. We believe that people need to talk about the subject to determine the level of ethics they want. The book Thinking Ethics, a result of the seminar, is to start the discussion. This blog is a contribution to the conversation.

Drugs in sport seems to be out of control. Individual sportsmen and women don't seem to have the personal resources necessary to refuse doping. Even sporting heroes, men and women who've made a name for themselves as 'clean' athletes one year are caught out the next. Both Gatlin and Landis were noted for their anti-drugs rhetoric.Personally I think that sport, at the grassroots, day-to-day competitive level, probably lacks an ethical framework all together. Individual competitors are encouraged to think only of winning, to become competitive monomaniacs. Top sporting figures (I'm no expert - this is just my opinion based on recent media) seem to be one-dimensional, hyper-competitive people for whom there is no bigger picture, no context.Reasserting ethical thinking in sport will be a tall order, perhaps requiring the creation of new institutions, new obligatory educational frameworks, new ways of being. Tricky.
