Church of Reason

Church of Reason (Kris Kuksi)

In chapter 30 of Robert Pirsig’s book, “Zen and the art of Motorcycle Maintenance” he writes,
“Phaedrus, the wolf, yes, down from the mountains to prey on the poor innocent citizens of this intellectual community...The Church of Reason, like all institutions of the System, is based on not individual strength but upon individual weakness. What’s really demanded in the Church of Reason is not ability, but inability. Then you are considered teachable. A truly able person is always a threat.”
