Olympism for the twenty-first century / Jim Parry

Parry, Jim

This chapter provides an overview of Jim Parry's arguments about Olympism. Parry attempts to make principled judgements on ethical issues through Olympic values. Taking the perspective of "philosophical anthropology", his reflections led him to formulate seven simple statements that capture the essence of what an "ideal human being should be and aspire to" regarding the Olympic ideal. According to him, Olympism promotes the ideals of: [1] individual all-round harmonious human development, [2] excellence and achievement, [3] effort in competitive sporting activity, [4] conditions of mutual respect, fairness, justice, and equality, [5] view to creating lasting personal human relationships of friendship, [6] international relationships of peace, toleration, and understanding, and [7] cultural alliances with the arts.
