What does a chess master think about while he is contemplating his next move? How is his thinking organized, what methods, his strategies does he emply to solve the problem? How does he decide and how profoundly has he envisaged the possible consequences of his move? Why do masters come up with the good move that lesser players overlook? In order to answer these questions back in 1938, the author undertook an experimental study in which distinguished chess masters such as Alekhine, Euwe, Keres, Fine, Flohr, among others, served as his subjects. The book has proven to be of fundamental interest to modern students of human thinking, decision making and artificial intelligence - not to mention chess players of all ranks, who may be curious about how the grandmasters think.
Adriaan D. de Groot (1914-2006) studied mathematics and later psychology, in which he received a Ph.D. in 1946 from the University of Amsterdam. He started his career as a secondary school mathematics teacher, but soon shifted to psychology. In 1950, he became a professor at the University of Amsterdam. The Amsterdam Academic Archive is an initiative of Amsterdam University Press. The series consists of scholarly titles which are no longer available, but which are still in demand in the Netherlands and abroad.
