The Glass Bead Game: (Magister Ludi) A Novel
The Glass Bead Game is an ultra-aesthetic game which is played by the scholars, creamed off in childhood and nurtured in elite schools, in the province of Castalia. The Master of the Glass Bead Game, Joseph Knecht, holds the most exalted office in Castalia. He personifies the detachment, serenity and aesthetic vision which reward a life dedicated to perfection of the intellect. But can, indeed should, man live isolated from hunger, family, children, women, in a perfect world where passions are tamed by meditation, where academic discipline and order are paramount? This is Herman Hesse’s great novel. It is a major contribution to contemporary philosophic literature and has a powerful vision of universality, the inner unity of man’s cultural ideals and his search for personal perfection and social responsibility.

The Glass Bead Game: A Basic Form of Play, Genealogy, and Examples Pt. 1
In 1943, Hermann Hesse published his novel Das Glasperlenspiel (The Glass Bead Game). The game itself is a central theme of the novel. He gave only a sketch of how it might be played in practice, but made it clear that it is a game of comparisons and analogies across different subject areas, in the tradition of Pythagoras, Lull, Kepler, Kircher and others who searched for the unifying principles of all knowledge. The history of the development of the game in the novel demonstrates a direct analogy with the history of mathematics in the seventeenth century, as shaped by mathematicians with a deep interest in music theory. Paul Pilkington has brought the Glass Bead Game to life in an ongoing series of books. His version of the Glass Bead Game can be played at many levels of complexity. Its moves can be deeply technical, or conversationally playful. A move in a game about music and astronomy might ask: If the solar year in astronomy is like the octave in music, what is the equivalent of a lunar month in music? A more playful game about music and fashion asks: If Alexander McQueen is the Jimi Hendrix of fashion, what is his Purple Haze? Another asks: Who is the Napoleon of football, and what was his Waterloo? A more intimate game enquires: Where is your Ithaca? This first volume pres...
