Thesis: Solo sports are superior to team sports.
Arguments: On the practical differences between the two, this thesis would argue solo sports (tennis, swimming, golf, and track & field) are superior because they can easily be practiced and played into adulthood, unlike team sports (volleyball, basketball, and soccer), which are rarely carried into adulthood. On the philosophical differences, this thesis would argue solo sports are less beset by banal, unsubstantiated claims about “the virtue of teamwork,” and so solo sports suffer less from overvaluation and flattery than team sports.
Note: If you are a high school senior at a classical Christian school who is interested in writing such a thesis, I may be willing to act as your advisor. Contact me for an interview through GibbsClassical.com
