I have a basic philosophical objection to putting people in ‘boxes’, particularly about matters over which they have no control.

None of us had a choice about when, where and to whom we were born. So gender, race or early childhood upbringing should not be used to put anyone up or down in the perceptions of society – stereotyping, if you like.

Some people have more opportunity than others in their range of choices in life. But, when individuals can make choices based on reasoning, their behaviour is a much more valid measure of the sort of character they really have.

Catching Legends and The Chess Board are intended to challenge the way we think.
