Example text

When moral education is successful, the many and complex factors that influence our choices and actions are unified. We act morally based on coherent inner motivation. The main concern of this book is to find sound moral reasons for choosing particular goals and courses of actions over others in sport. The norms at which I arrive in the course of this search should be understood as possible goals of a good socialization process. But the practicalities of how moral education should proceed in order to bring together the many factors that influence action and internalize such norms, though one of the key topics in the psychology and the pedagogy of sport, is beyond the scope of this book.

This formal norm has no direct action-guiding potential. When I come to develop substantial norms for the distribution of goods and burdens in sport competitions (Chapter 3), I need access to relevant information about the practice under discussion. At this stage, the norm stands as a backing norm in need of elaboration. The consequentialist and the non-consequentialist norms now formulated seem to complement each other. This does not necessarily mean that they constitute a complete moral point of view.

How can we justify such a claim? Scepticism often raises fundamental philosophical questions. And even the most concrete questions can lead to metaphysical puzzles if properly pursued. Here, moral norms seem to presuppose that individuals actually can freely choose between alternative courses of action and that they can be held responsible for their choices. But is this presupposition reasonable? If it is, what are the characteristics of a free or voluntary choice? Moreover, if we can be held responsible for our actions, it seems reasonable to assume that we can be challenged on our justifications.
