How To Play Dynamic Chess - download book
As the title indicates, there is such a thing as a dynamic component of chess, and the problems it raises are the subject of this book. To start with, therefore, let us look into what the very concept of 'dynamics' involves when applied to chess. How is it to be defined?
In the most general terms, the answer is that while statics concerns itself with things in a state of rest, dynamics concentrates on things in motion. However, a question still remains about the essence of dynamics in chess - and also of chess statics, since the two concepts are inseparable, like the two sides of a coin.
Above all, why does the author raise these matters in a book intended for non-professionals? My view is that the terms and the concepts underlying them are exceptionally important; indeed I maintain that statics and dynamics are the very factors on which the whole edifice of chess is founded. Incidentally, I consider the word factors to be the correct one here; it is not so much a case of 'principles', or of 'phenomena' (like phenomena of nature). The static factors in chess are the elements of a position which don't change for a relatively long time, or change insignificantly and gradually; whereas dynamic factors are those elements which are in a rapid process of change.
