King or Pawn, the Philosophy of the Chess Player

Original title: Roi ou pion, La philosophie du joueur d’échec

Author: Lucaci, Dorica

Synopsis

The game of chess has become very popular since the broadcast of the successful series The Queen’s Gambit.

This strategic game with highly regulated movements has inspired Dorica Lucaci to write this book. Indeed, she establishes philosophical parallels between chess and our decision-making process.

For her, our choices can be compared to a sequence of movements: all you need is the right strategy!

Included: an interview with Charles Dumas, the passionate chess player who is positioned 200th out of 50,000 in the French national ranking.
