Tour de France: “Is there anything better than this great summer soap opera?”

Guillaume Martin, himself captain of the Cofidis team, did it again last year. He wrote a philosophy of cycling. In “Socrates à Vélo” he imagines the philosophers how they would prepare for the Tour de France. It’s about dealing with performance, discipline and the desire to drive. Martin tries to bring the world of cycling closer to us through philosophical reflection on it. It’s a strange sport that philosophers ride in but also think about the philosopher.
