Pirsig wrote Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values in 1974. The philosophical novel, based on autobiographical events, explores the "Metaphysics of Quality", a theory of reality that places Quality, or what is good or of value, as of the utmost importance. The book became an outstanding bestseller, reaching 15 million sales worldwide. It was printed in twenty-seven languages and was described by the press as "the most widely read philosophy book, ever". It was featured in Waterstones Books of the Century, The Modern Library's 100 Best Novels, and HarperCollins 100 Best Spiritual Books of the Century. Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance has been categorized as a modern-day odyssey, a fictionalized autobiography, and a discursive, philosophical essay all in one.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

On the Trail of Robert Pirsig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Zen and Now is the story of a story that will appeal to the 5 million readers of the original and serve as an initiation to a whole new generation. Since its original publication in 1968, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values has touched whole generations of readers with its serious attempt to define “quality” in a world that seems indifferent to the responsibilities that quality brings. Mark Richardson expands that journey with an investigation of his own – to find the enigmatic author of Zen and the Art, ask him a few questions, and place his classic book in context. The result manages to be a biography of Pirsig himself – in the discovery of an unknown life of madness, murder and eventual resolution – and a splendid meditation on creativity and problem-solving, sanity and insanity. From the Hardcover edition.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Though both pundits and politicians stress the need for maintaining certain core values as the guiding principles of moral conduct, in the welter of our postmodern era there is no consensus as to what those values should be. Generally, it is up to the individual to decide what he or she ought to value. This book is designed to offer guidance to anyone with an honest interest in exploring individual values in a systematic way. Philosopher William L. Reese takes the reader through an introspective step-by-step process that leads to values clarification and includes a sampling of both classical and contemporary writings on ethics from many of the great thinkers of the world, in the East and the West. By comparing their own values to those of noted thinkers as presented in the selections, readers gain critical insights into their value system and can determine the status of what they value in relation to the whole history of ethics. This is an excellent, stimulating method of self-discovery for both students of philosophy and religion, or anyone with an interest in exploring the guiding principles by which we live.
