Why, Chess and Life

by Webmaster on January 16, 2016

Does the process of thinking in chess help in daily life? This is an issue I discuss in my article entitled Chess and Life, a piece that aims to capture the psychological essence of chess as a learning tool. I have published this article previously, but have finally placed it on my own website.

The writing is inspired by the audio lectures given by American International Master Joshua Waitzkin in the Chessmaster software, as well as his book, The Art of Learning. (Many may know that Waitzkin is the title subject of the 1993 film Searching for Bobby Fischer.)

I have also rewritten my article on “Why play chess?” and have moved the old one here.
