    The Nature and Meaning of Teamwork.Paul Gaffney - 2015 - Journal of the Philosophy of Sport 42 (1):1-22.
    Teamwork in sport presents a variety of special challenges and satisfactions. It requires an integration of talents and contributions from individual team members, which is a practical achievement, and it represents a shared pursuit, which is a moral achievement. In its best instances team sport allows members to transform individual interests into a common interest, and in the process discover of part of their own identities. Teamwork is made intelligible by the collective pursuit of victory, but moral requirements importantly condition (...)

    Surrogates.Paul Gaffney - 2004 - Review of Metaphysics 58 (2):473-474.
    This remarkable little book starts with the premise that things often stand for something else, and proceeds to explore the metaphysical implications of this seemingly benign remark. A familiar instance is the subject matter of semiotics; however, as Paul Weiss discovers, not only do words have the capacity to signify something other than themselves, but also, and more interestingly, every aspect of Being, as well as Being itself, can play a surrogative role with respect to other aspects of Being.

    Breakthrough Victories: How Can a Loser Ever Win?Paul Gaffney - 2017 - Sport, Ethics and Philosophy 11 (1):3-11.

Breakthrough victories in sport are achievements that both reward persistent effort and open new horizons in the pursuit of excellence. They are significant because they seem to hold out a promise for future performance, now that (...)

    Philosophy of Sport.Paul Gaffney - 1992 - Review of Metaphysics 45 (4):863-864.
    If there is one argument that can be said to animate this book it is the contention that the world of sport not only in itself presents some challenging and fascinating questions, but also that it offers an important perspective from which to consider many of the more traditional philosophical themes. Drew Hyland skillfully frames those issues that deserve serious study and, in many instances, points the way toward a resolution of current controversies. This book could serve, therefore, as an (...)
