The book aims to establish a critical dialogue between sports ethicists and bioethicists across the range of sporting disciplines at elite level. It will address questions such as:

  • are the increasingly intrusive testing methods of elite sports compatible with the right to autonomy and privacy granted to patients in general medicine?
  • could there be a moral obligation to correct injustices produced by the genetic lottery?
  • how should the goals of sports medicine be viewed from the perspective of rationing scarce health care resources?

This book was published as a special issue in Sport, Ethics and Philosophy.
