He was of German and Swedish descent. The elder Pirsig served as the law school dean from to , and retired from teaching at UMLS in He then entered the University of Minnesota to study biochemistry that autumn. In Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, he described the central character, thought to represent himself, [6] as being far from a typical student; he was interested in science as a goal in itself, rather than as a way to establish a career.

While doing laboratory work in biochemistry , Pirsig became greatly troubled by the existence of more than one workable hypothesis to explain a given phenomenon, and that the number of hypotheses appeared unlimited.

He could not find any way to reduce the number of hypotheses—he became perplexed by the role and source of hypothesis generation within scientific practice. The question distracted him to the extent that he lost interest in his studies and failed to maintain good grades.

Finally, he was expelled from the university. He was stationed in South Korea until Upon his discharge from the Army, he returned to the United States and lived in Seattle , Washington , for less than a year, at which point he decided to finish the education he had abandoned.

At the University of Chicago , he performed graduate-level work in philosophy in the Committee on the Analysis of Ideas and Study of Methods but he did not obtain a degree there. Shortly thereafter he taught at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Ostensibly a first-person narrative based on a motorcycle trip he and his young son Chris had taken from Minneapolis to San Francisco , it is an exploration of the underlying metaphysics of Western culture.

He also gives the reader a short summary of the history of philosophy , including his interpretation of the philosophy of Aristotle as part of an ongoing dispute between universalists , admitting the existence of universals , and the Sophists , opposed by Socrates and his student Plato. Pirsig finds in "Quality" a special significance and common ground between Western and Eastern world views. The second book, this time "the captain" of a sailboat, follows on from where Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance left off.

They had two sons: Chris, born in , and Theodore Ted , born in He was diagnosed with schizophrenia and treated with electroconvulsive therapy on numerous occasions, [7] a treatment he discusses in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

Nancy sought a divorce during this time; [17] they formally separated in and divorced in In , his son Chris, who figured prominently in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, was fatally stabbed in a mugging outside the San Francisco Zen Center at the age of Due to frailty of health, Pirsig did not travel to Bozeman in December to accept the accolade. The donation included a manuscript of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, a signed first edition of the book, and tools and clothing from the ride.

Major themes[ edit ] The main goal of this book is to develop a complete metaphysical system based on the idea of Quality introduced in his first book. As in his previous book, the narrative is embedded between rounds of philosophical discussion. Unlike his previous book, in which he creates a dichotomy between Classical and Romantic Quality, this book centers on the division of Quality into the Static and the Dynamic. According to the novel, the known universe can be divided into four Static values: inorganic, biological, social, and intellectual. Everything in the known universe can be categorized into one of these four categories, except Dynamic Quality. Because Dynamic Quality is indefinable, the novel discusses the interactions between the four Static values and the Static values themselves.
