  • My favorite pawn structure

    I've written two magazine articles about the K3-KB2-KN3-KR3 pawn structure, plus a section in my Capablanca book. There's probably a book to be written about it — it's an unsatisfactory shelter for a king, and it arises so commonly.   | Read More

  • QUAD 45|45 Tourney #2 (1600 - 1799) Ronde 1

  • Philosophers on Love

    What is love? Is it desirable? It is the same thing as happiness, or perhaps the opposite? Schopenhauer was perhaps the first mainstream philosopher to write primarily about love, both as a moral emotion and generally how two people fall for each... | Read More

  • On Cliches

    What is a cliche? What isn't a cliche? Can we ever say something truly original? And if so, what is the "magical" line that divides originality from mere imitation?  The answer depends on whether you view people as naturally good or evil. This t... | Read More
