Pierre de Coubertin (president from 1896 to 1925) is broadly accepted as the founder of the modern Games, and with the words of the Olympic scholar John J. MacAloon, it may be said that, 'No modern institution so important as the Olympics owes its existence fully to the actions of a single person'. 42 Its origin, structure, symbols, and official ideology still bear much of Coubertin's stamp. Coubertin was both an educationalist and a social reformer as well as the founder of Olympism, the ideology of the Olympic movement.

Primary Contributions (1). Pierre, baron de Coubertin. Pierre, baron de Coubertin, French educator who played a central role in the revival of the Olympic Games in 1896, after nearly 1,500 years of abeyance. He was a founding member of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and served as its president from 1896 to 1925.

This Great Symbol is the definitive study of the origins of the modern Olympic Games and of their founder, Pierre de Coubertin, whose ideological stamp the Olympics still bear. Behind this fascinating blend of biography and history lies an impressive framework of cultural, social, and psychological theories skilfully employed to interpret the creation and symbolism of the modern Olympic Games. Hailed as both a classic in sport history and as a paradigmatic study in the anthropology of the past, This Great Symbol helped launch the new collaboration between historians and cultural anthropologists that continues to mark the human sciences worldwide. For this 25th anniversary edition, Professor MacAloon adds a new preface evaluating subsequent scholarship on Coubertin and the Olympic origins and a highly personal afterword describing the impact of This Great Symbol on his own subsequent career as an Olympic anthropologist and cultural performance theory.
