Hunting and Fishing: The Only True Sports

“As an urban intellectual, I was used to sneering at ‘the unspeakable in full pursuit of the uneatable’, even if I recognised that this was the weakest of Oscar Wilde’s quips.” Roger Scruton, a leading British philosopher, suggests that hunting and fishing may be the only true sports, that all the rest are games. This is a fine, thought-provoking piece in the U.K. Guardian. Scruton is the author of more than 20 books, including 2001’s On Hunting (St. Augustine’s Press, 173 pages).
