The author uses the form of a story about a motorcycle trip to examine one of the most interesting questions of philosophy. How do we determine what is good? It is a judgment that we can mostly agree on ? but just how is it made? Pirsig examines this closely and explores the false dichotomy between the artistic and the technical view of life. The hipster and the geek. An important book on what we think and why we think it.
