Subject: Question about Rating and Morphy.

In Warriors of the Mind (1989) by Keene and Divinsky an attempt was made to compare the playing strength of masters from different times. But such a project must not be taken too seriously. You have to make a lot of assumptions to establish a basis for you calculations, and in some cases, like Morphy's, the material is rather sparse.
Their final list:
1. Kasparov
2. Karpov
3. Fischer
4. Botvinnik
5. Capablanca
6. Lasker
7. Korchnoi
8. Spasski
9. Smyslov
10. Petrosian
11. Morphy
