Poker and Philosophy
Pocket Rockets and Philosopher Kings
Edited by Eric Bronson
Volume 20 in the Popular Culture and Philosophy® series
There’s more to poker than life, yet life, for what that’s worth, can be enriched by the philosophical lessons of poker, and—more to the point—you’ll pick up more pots if you stretch your mind to encompass the vital lessons of philosophy.
For the thoughtful poker player seeking that elusive extra depth, Poker and Philosophy has twenty card-playing members of the philosophy profession tackling the riskier questions that arise within the infinite but still joyfully expanding universe of Texas Hold’em.
Eric Bronson heads the Department of Philosophy and History at Berkeley College in New York City. He co-edited The Lord of the Rings and Philosophy (2003) and edited Baseball and Philosophy (2004).
