Abstract

In this article, we contextualize and introduce the papers that comprise the special issue, “Bernard Suits’ Legacy: New Inspirations and Interpretations.” The articles discuss the work of Suits to raise, formulate, and face challenges that it presents to open new philosophical debates on his philosophical analysis of play, game, and sport. The issue comprises 13 articles that explore the two central themes in The Grasshopper. One section focuses on the ontology of games, whereas the other centers on the normative aspects of game playing, that is, on Suits’ notion of Utopia. The special issue closes with three brief reports concerning recent translations of The Grasshopper into foreign languages, a biographical note on Suits, and an interview with Cheryl Ballantyne, Suits’ widow. We hope that the works contained in the special issue will help further the knowledge and stimulate the study of Suits’ work not only within sport philosophy, but also in those fields where discussions on the nature of games and the good life are prevalent.
