Dr John Lenarcic (RMIT School of Business, IT and Logistics) hosts a tribute to the American writer and philosopher Robert Pirsig (1928-2017).
"To live only for some future goal is shallow. It's the sides of the mountain that sustain life, not the top." – Robert Pirsig
Pirsig's most notable work was the philosophical novel “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance: An Inquiry into Values” (1974) which has sold more than 5 million copies. Structured as a fictional autobiography, this rambling narrative of ideas densely probed the metaphysics of quality.
