From the Back Cover --

This book contains a number of essays on the game of Go by William Cobb, professor emeritus of philosophy from the College of  William and Mary in Virginia and an International Go Instructor from the Nihon Kiin. Written over the last decade, they were primarily published in the American Go Associationís journals. Most of the essays focus on ways in which Go can be related to Buddhist views of the search for enlightenment, a connection that has been recognized for over a thousand years in Buddhist countries, but little explored in English language literature. Cobbís reflections also consider other perspectives on the game, from the question of which of the fine arts most closely resembles the art of Go, to the appropriateness of using martial language to describe the game, to the similarity of Go to football. Cobb continues to write and publish such reflections in his column, The Empty Board, in the AGAís E-Journal.
