Philosophy and Chess

Philosophy Looks at ChessTwelve professional thinkers playfully explore various aspects of chess in the new book Philosophy Looks at Chess:

* Do chess players think in words?
* Does chess explain how a benevolent God might exist in a world permeated by evil?
* Is chess really a game?

This book will definitely give you some food for thought with chapters on technology, ethics, hip-hop and backward analysis. For a list of authors and more information, check our website.

A book with almost the same title but quite a different content is The Philosophy of Chess, a 2007 reprint of an 1857 original by William Cluley. Here you can find a long essay on the mid-19th century thinking on chess and on contemporary chess openings, mainly king's pawn openings. More information here.
