“I think, therefore I play!” So says Janet Gibson, who is leading her first years in a multifaceted exploration of chess.

The students are studying:

  • The history of the game,
  • biographies of grandmasters,
  • the artistry of chess sets,
  • chess in music, art, and novels,
  • the world of tournament play, and
  • the psychology of expertise, spatial memory, and competition.
