Review of Lila: An Inquiry Into Morals by Robert M. Pirsig

Genre = Philosophy

Elaborate Description

A bunch of highly intellectual essays put together into a remarkable story. Magnificent. As the story proceeds, observations led Phaedrus to questions which led the way to huge analysis of the topic in detail. Some analysis at first seem incomplete or confusing, but are then reinforced by other analysis which tie many other analysis together. The insights in this book are impossible not to appreciate. The transition from story to discussion topic to other topics back to story are so well done that they seem not to happen but that the reader understands. The flow of the analysis is extraordinarily well written. Some topics under analysis are economic order, anthropology, culture, evolution and the thing that ties everything together is value.
