is usually supposed, categories distinct from V(alue), and mechanically
coordinated with it."
Prior to reading this, we thought this was an original notion
of Robert M. Pirsig. Clearly it is not. However, our finding does
not detract from MoQ's essence.
We choose to view this as superior evidence of William James
as Western cultures' first quantum philosopher. Prior, we had
thought of Pirsig in that light.
Students of philosophy may note how crucial James' assessment
Aristotle, based on suggestions from Plato and Parmenides placed
truth above good and made them separate categories. Observe classical
mechanics' caesarean conception. Pirsig's works beg our calling
