The Empty Board: 1994-2004
By: William Cobb
Publisher: Slate and Shell, 2005
ISBN10 1-932001-24-7
116 pp.

A collection of philosophical essays on the game of Go by William S. Cobb, published by Slate and Shell publishers. Most were originally published as the column The Empty Board in the American Go Journal.

From [ext] the publisher’s page: “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. Cobb also considers the relationship of go to such things as football and demons.”
