“The Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” by Robert M. Pirsig is a philosophical exploration disguised as a motorcycle journey. Pirsig interweaves a motorcycle trip with his son and their friends across America with philosophical musings on the nature of quality, the meaning of life, and the intersection of technology and humanity. Through the protagonist’s internal struggles and external adventures, Pirsig delves into the concept of ‘quality’ as a bridge between the analytical and the intuitive, offering insights into the pursuit of excellence in both craftsmanship and personal understanding. The novel is a captivating blend of narrative storytelling and profound philosophical reflection.
