[Blunderov] The chess metaphor, as we have seen, has had occasion for many a
recent outing. But is it overused? Apparently not.
CHESS AS A MARTIAL GAME AND
AS A MEANS OF SKILLS DEVELOPMENT
by Prof. György Kende, Ph.D.
The relationship between chess and military strategy, chess and skills
development, chess and personality development is far from being new. The
timeliness of my publication and suggestions is supported by the development
of information technology in the recent decades. In 2004 Swedish and
Australian scientists achieved substantial results in the research of the
relationship between chess and warfare by using computer technology and
mathematical methods. Due to the excellent information technological
background of chess, the effectiveness of chess education has substantially
increased, as a result of which, up-to-date methods of skills and
personality development through chess are relatively easy to work out and
accomplish. This publication, by presenting some scientific results, points
at the possibility of joining in the research on one hand and at the
possibility of exploiting the educational, skills and personality
development applications on the other. </snip>
