Issue 12 | Athletics in Education

Classical educators often praise the benefits of leisure—the unhindered quest for humane ideals, like truth and beauty, as ends in themselves. Yet, we also experience leisure through the synchronous activities of mind and body. This issue of VIRTUE explores how the leisure of athletics can provide real insights to the pursuit of a philosophical and humane way of life.
