Chess, the ancient strategy game, meets the latest, cutting-edge philosophy in this unique book. When 12 philosophers weigh in on one of the world's oldest and most beloved pastimes, the results are often surprising.

Putting forth a remarkable array of different views on chess from philosophers with varied chess-proficiency,Philosophy Looks at Chessis an engaging read for chess adherents and the philosophically inclined alike.
