Cricket and the love of wisdom
At various points in the past, I've attempted to link up philosophy and cricket on this blog. Sometimes by shamelessly plugging a paper on the morality of cricketing practices that I co-authored, and on another occasion, by announcing a grand project to collect references to cricket in the philosophical literature. On the latter front, I collected three examples. One was Austin on cricket balls. Another was Austin (again!) on the word 'real'. And then one, which wasn't so much philosophy but a poem by John Forbes which was about cricket and Richard Rorty. I know there at least three philosophers out there that read this blog (Yes, this means you: Atheist, DS Henry and Johnno!). I could use some more help collecting references to cricket in the philosophical literature. So, like, if you have any, please send them in. (If I was looking for references to Aussie Rules, I'd just consult David Lewis).
