    it is there. (if you are talking about this http://www.chess.com/article/view/video-guide )

    it's in the strategy section, and the series is "playing with a space advantage"

    Is it possible to put this series in the video guide? It is much more helpful to study if things are put together there, I only accidentally found this video and think it is so great it needs more attention (just like the rest of the series on working with space adv)

    yeah, or like judging other things in chess. i put my knight on a good square, and then i ask: how much is this knight worth? one person says 3.2; another says 3; yet another says 3.06, and another says 3.6. it's not easy to judge, but it still has meaning, and we can try to refine our ability to make accurate judgments.

    So it's like judging beauty: there are enough commonalities in people's perspectives to say there is a consensus on what is or is not beautiful, but the consensus isn't absolute.[/philosophical]

    If you let the above analysis stand, I'll consider myself to have comprehended the element of space.  Thanks again for your timely responses.

    sort of. but i would say the fact that it depends on your judgment, and that there are nuances does not make it entirely subjective. if you there is an undefended square on b5, that you could put your knight on, and your opponent has a pawn on a7, you have to ask yourself if it's good or bad for the opponent to play a7-a6. if it's really bad for him, you can consider b5 to be yours. if it's really good for him, don't count b5 at all. if it has pluses and minuses, then i count b5 as about half a square.
