Phædrus – a character familiar to readers of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance – is sailing down the Hudson River when he meets Lila Blewitt, an unapologetically sexual, psychologically unstable woman whom a mutual friend warns him against. But Phædrus is drawn to her physically, and interested in her intellectually, finding her “a culture of one” in whom he discerns an unexpected “Quality”. Sailing with him to Manhattan, where her mental state deteriorates further, Lila prompts Phædrus to explore conflicts of values, such as those between Native Americans and Europeans, or between the insane and the normal.

About the Author:

Born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Robert M. Pirsig has achieved world fame and classic status for his iconic book, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values. This was followed, seventeen years later, by Lila: An Inquiry into Morals, an updated version of which was published by Alma in 2006.

Review:

'Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance was like a first child. Maybe that will always be the best-loved one. But this second child is the bright one. I think a lot of people will argue with some of the ideas in Lila. There may be controversy. But if people are still reading these two books a hundred years from now, I predict Lila will be the one they consider the more important' - Robert M. Pirsig

Book Description Alma Books Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Repr.. Language: English. Brand new Book. Phaedrus - a character familiar to readers of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance - is sailing down the Hudson River when he meets Lila Blewitt, an unapologetically sexual, psychologically unstable woman whom a mutual friend warns him against. But Phaedrus is drawn to her physically, and interested in her intellectually, finding her a culture of oneA" in whom he discerns an unexpected QualityA". Sailing with him to Manhattan, where her mental state deteriorates further, Lila prompts Phaedrus to explore conflicts of values, such as those between Native Americans and Europeans, or between the insane and the normal. Finally, after years of struggling, he formulates his Metaphysics of QualityA", which offers a system of understanding - and evaluating - actions according to a hierarchy of four evolutionary realms (natural, biological, social and intellectual). Lila remains elusive to Phaedrus's penetrating intellect, and her destiny remains a mystery, but Pirsig's wideranging philosophical explorations will provoke and engage readers in the memorable experience of pursuing the journey started by Pirsig in the 1970s to its final end.
