Four-Dimensional Chess

I always enjoy reading Michael Goeller's original articles over at The Kenilworthian. His recent piece entitled "Chess in the Fourth Dimension" covers some interesting thoughts from Kasparov, Huebner and Rowson, among others.

Goeller writes: "It was in R.N. Coles's book Dynamic Chess where I first came upon the idea that chess is a game of four dimensions: material (based on the relative value of the pieces), time (development and initiative), space (control of the board), and position (meaning structural or dynamic weaknesses and strengths in your pieces, pawns, coordination, or king safety). Players typically understand them in that order."
