Description

What is the role of art in modern society? Is it made to entertain us, to teach us? Both? And what of philosophy? What relevance does it have to how we think and live? In Opening Gambits, cultural critic and philosopher Mark Kingwell puts forth an argument for the similarity between art and philosophy as forms of play, working at the margins of meaning and sense.
Written in Kingwell's witty and eloquent style, Opening Gambits is a thought-provoking analysis by a social commentator at the top of his game.
