Lila by Robert M. Pirsig

Great, great book !
A bit different in respect of "Zen and the art...", but with some points in common, as well....(narrative style amidst fiction and non-fiction; great reflections also in narrative style; the protagonist, Phaedrus, is the son of the protagonist of the better known "Zen and the art..." by the same author. There are a few central concepts that comes along the narrative plot, such as Quality, in particular Dynamic Quality; the concept of Moral; the hierarchic levels of Quality (biological, social, intellectual...) and so on... Some of those quite news, others already known, but read and presented under a new light. Many, many point of reflections and suggestive images of concepts... Unfortunaltely, due to time reasons, I can't write down all of those and all the great thinkings this book (and also "Zen and the art..." that this book caused to rise in my mind. I hope to soon come back to all that and possibly write down something more. Anyway, my brain has as assimilated all that and is continuously mixing and making analogies thanks to the Pirsig's book concepts.
