This week’s video is on the topic of one of the most important and influential books written in the past half-century: “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” by Robert M. Pirsig.
It is a powerful, moving, and penetrating examination of how we live . . . and a breathtaking meditation on how to live better.
The Book takes its form as a tale of a 17-day motorcycle trip taken by a father, his eleven-year-old son “Chris” and a married couple called The Sutherlands. “Zen and the art of motorcycle maintenance” is however much more than a fictional tale of a motorcycle trip and weaved into the story are philosophical discussions and reflections focusing on the opposition of classical versus romantical thinking in modern society.
The philosophical hypothesis made in the book is that many of the world’s problems stem from a gap between these two modes of thought. The book shows us that while the divide between science and the humanities may seem vast, that doesn’t mean the two aren’t reconcilable and that learning to balance your classical and romantic mindset can increase your overall quality-of-life.
