Description

Socrates: doctor, social activist, left-wing political campaigner, writer and composer ...Or captain of the best Brazil side never to win a world cup; a chain-smoking, beer-drinking mid-field magician - the man of whom Pele said: "he could play football better backwards than most could play forwards". The answer is both. And here, for the first time drawing on his unique position as a gifted player and an astute observer of the game, 'Doctor Socrates' offers his diagnosis of a footballing culture in a state of flux. An eclectic and perceptive mix of polemic, anecdote, and personal history, "Football Philosophy" is above all a love letter to a country in which, in football as in life: "Beauty comes first. Victory is secondary. What matters is joy".
