Book Review

On Boxing: Critical Interventions in the Bittersweet Science by Joseph D. Lewandowski

In On Boxing: Critical Interventions in the Bittersweet Science (Routledge), philosophy professor Joseph Lewandowski, well versed in the noble art of self-defense, offers a philosophical and cultural critique of contemporary boxing in the United States. We asked Anne Tjønndal of Nord University, a seasoned boxer herself, for a review. Some critical points notwithstanding, she finds that Lewandowski’s effort serves to inspire readers to further critical explorations of combat sports. It is, she concludes, a highly enjoyable read for anyone interested in boxing in the US. (Published in English 220915)

This is a time of endings. In the midst of the all-consuming media spectacle surrounding the death of Queen Elizabeth II, “tennis royalty” in the form of Roger Federer will retire in the same week and in the same city that she is laid to rest. When the career of a sporting celebrity concludes, it is widely represented as if they have died, in what journalists call “sports obituaries”. The person in question is usually still alive and will probably go on to be successful in the business, media and/or charity sectors. But the experience of watching them perform live at the stadium or on screen immediately mutates into nostalgic reflection. (Published in English 220918.)
