Lenk, Hans

S.O.S. - Save Olympic Spirit - Toward a Social Philosophy of the Olympics - A collection of Olympic Studies By Hans Lenk


Olympic Gold and laurels of an intellectual Olympian combined: Hans Lenk is the first modern philosopher who is an Olympic champion (1960) and past and Honorary President of the world academy of philosophers (I.I.P.). Here, he collected his Olympic Studies – plus a new outlook. – His ”Values – Aims – Reality of the Modern Olympic Games” (1961, in German), the first comprehensive socio-philosophical treatise of the modern Olympic Movement, is summarized here in English. Later, he often contributed to Olympic philosophy and anthropology with new ideas like “the essence of Olympic man”, “authentic achievement”, “the sovereign athlete”, “democratic coaching”, “Herculean and Homeric myths” in sport and about Coubertin’s elitism and the Olympic Idea. He analyses assets and dangers of the Games in our victory-obsessed society: winning is fine, but not “the only thing”. We must not exaggerate “telecracy”, the athlete’s human dignity should prevail. Lenk applies his ethical insights about “concrete humanity” and “responsibility” to an “always constructive and humanitarian critique” of top-level and Olympic sport (the editors). - It’s time to Save Olympic Spirit!
