Al di là delle spiegazioni più immediate (denaro e fama), questo libro ricerca le motivazioni segrete che hanno indotto uomini dai talenti più diversi a dedicare al gioco uno smisurato spazio mentale ...more

“Mi sento obbligato a dirti, in quanto libraio, che questo volume contiene concetti freudiani oramai sorpassati” Mi ha detto il gentile venditore del mitologico negozio di scacchi di Bologna.
“Eh?!” Gli ho risposto io.
Detto questo, in effetti il concetto del “se giochi a scacchi miri ad eliminare il re, quindi vuoi uccidere tuo padre, trombarti tua madre impagliare il gatto sposarti tua sorella e cerchi avventure omosessuali (aggiungere anche vari falli qua e là)” forse è un po’ esagerato, ma ha

I read this book many years ago when I was a teen and very much into chess. I remember being rather shocked at it back then. Being more prepared for the Freudian stuff I was less shocked on this reading. Really it is impossible to take seriously Fine's conjectures about players playing out their homosexual fantasies otb, but it is fun nonetheless.

I read this in preparation for reading Nabokov's the Defense, which is about the psychology of a chess player. Reuben Fine was an American chess champion and a psychologist. This is an older book and much more rooted in Freudian analysis than a book written today most likely would be. Overall, I didn't get a lot out of it, which may say more about my limitations than any limitations the book may have. I didn't find it overly persuasive or engaging, as I thought a book about crazy, obsessed geniu ...more
