Robert M. Pirsig is the renowned author of the bestseller, ‘Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance,” a popular cult classic of the present century. As a child, he believed that there was a theory that could explain the different singularities of life and he hoped that science would be the solution to his queries and enlighten him. Contrary to his conviction, he arrived at a number of hypotheses for many given phenomenon while he was doing laboratory work at the University of Minnesota. This resulted in the deterioration of his academic performance and his subsequent dismissal from the university. Today, he advocates the theory of ‘Metaphysics of Quality’ and through his works he explains the impact of “quality” and “good” over reality. His theory is the culmination of Western and Oriental philosophy through which he offers solutions to the crises of values in the western civilization. He has also authored another famous book ‘Lila: An Inquiry into Morals’, which was nominated for the Pulitzer.
