The philosophy of chess (Guatemala, Guatemala)

Cultural Activities

Philosophy can be found in any activity, including sports. This talk was about just that, what aspects do philosophy and chess have in common?

At the Centro Historico Centre in Guatemala, two volunteers developed this concept, based on their experience in the game of chess and in their philosophical studies. One of the speakers is also a chess instructor and candidate to master by FIDE (National Chess Federation in Guatemala).

The talk touched upon many points of interest common to the two disciplines. As in the philosophical life, in chess one seeks the improvement of oneself, and becoming a better player. Taking responsibility for our actions is another of the similarities, so we can avoid making the same mistakes over and over again.
