"Certainly Lasker's fame today is mainly due to the fact that he was the only German to be world chess champion for twenty-seven years (1894-1921); longer than any world champion before or after him. But reducing his life to this aspect overlooks that Lasker, with unusual intellectual versatility, was also creative and productive in other areas. It is the task of this volume to pursue Lasker's life's work in these areas."
In this volume, seven authors deal with Emanuel Lasker, the world chess champion, mathematician and philosopher – an intellectual between worlds in turbulent times of accelerated social change and radical political upheaval.
