A Robert Pirsig Club
An email list sponsored by Geoff of NZ.
This list has a professional appearance, but it is new,
so you will have to try it for yourself. Big advantage
appears to be discussion of both ZMM and Lila.


A Project with Paradoxical Goals

This site is wonderful! Beautiful background chambered nautilus graphic. Superb links!

Here is the (nearly) full text of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

A small segment at the end of Part III is missing. It is the part where Pirsig discusses 'Mu.'

I suggest you buy a copy of ZMM at Amazon or equivalent online bookstore. See Oliver Schoenborn's home page dedicated to Pirisg. Neat graphics. Neel Vasavada's home page has a terrific picture of Pirsig and son Chris on the famous motorcycle.
Link is temporarily lost! Gaal Yahas' home page has a brief dialogue about ZMM and Lila.

Bohemian Ink offers more great links to Pirsig material.

Some of these links are redundant to ones we have listed here, but there a couple unique ones, too!

Link is temporarily lost!

Robert M. Pirsig

American writer - philosopher
ð Yourdon's site is locked now. Unable to access it.

Ed Yourdon's home page has this quote from ZMM which Ed uses to describe New York City.

Ed is a renowned system analysis expert in software functional and object-oriented system development.

Doug Renselle is a student of Ed's methods, among others.

Frans Faase's home page at


links to this page. See link to Chris Pirsig too. James McCabe's site. He calls it The Metaphysics of Value. His subtitle is A Brief Summary of the Philosophical Ideas Expounded in Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and Lila: An Inquiry into Morals

This is a sub-page within The Principia Cybernetica site. The page points to the contents (8 Volumes) of proceedings from the Einstein Meets Magritte (EMM) conference in Brussels Belgium where Pirsig presented his now famous Subjects, Objects, Data & Values paper in May, 1995. Volume I, item 14 is Pirsig's paper.

Also visit the home page of Principia. It is superb! They have a very nice map which will help you find your way around the site.

Here is the schedule for the EMM conference:

Pirsig's presentation was Thursday, June 1, 1995, plenary session 12, 17:00-18:00. 

by Cory Visi (My Philosophy Paper)

The Evolution of Consciousness

An interesting perspective which sees things as alive. On page two of this brief discourse Cory starts referring to Pirsig thus: "Robert Pirsig main philosophy describes a Metaphysics of Quality which suggests a connection between humans and non-humans." This piece starts on the right track. It ends with a letdown.
