A Philosophy of Tennis

or, you Kant be serious

Thomas Rowland
The game of tennis as a metaphor for philosophical questions




A Philosophy of Tennis provides a unique look at the ‘big questions’ of philosophy examined through the lens of the game of tennis.  Along the way the reader encounters

·      A fist fight over the existence of free will

·      A visit to a treatment center for chronic tennis losers

·      What tennis stars really are thinking during TV interviews

·      How faith can help your backhand

·      Whether eating bananas during tennis play constitutes ethical behavior

·      How to confront questioned line calls

·      The morality behind tennis shrieking/grunting

This book is a fascinating and graceful read for players, coaches, and fans alike.


Thomas Rowland is former director of pediatric cardiology at the Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, Massachusetts.

As a student he was also tennis reporter for the campus newspaper Michigan Daily, and has been an invited speaker before the French Tennis Federation. He also authored Tennisology, a book addressing the science of the sport. Rowland is nowadays a recreational tennis player and distance runner.
