Abstract:

This is Hesse's last and greatest work, which won for him the Nobel Prize for Literature. Something like chess but far more intricate, the game of Magister Ludi known as the Glass Bead Game is thought in its purest form, a synthesis through which philosophy, art, music and scientific law are appreciated simultaneously. The scholar-players are isolated within Castalia, an autonomous elite institution devoted wholly to the mind and the imagination... Part romance, part philosophical tract, part utopian fantasy, its theme is the conflict between, and the need to synthesize, thought and action, intellect and the flesh.
