Zen and the Art of Higher Education Maintenance: Bridging Classic and Romantic Notions of Quality.
Shields, Patricia M.
Journal of Higher Education Policy and Management, v21 n2 p165-172 Nov 1999
Uses Robert Pirsig's ideas in "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" to explore two ways of viewing quality in higher education: the romantic and the classic. Analyzes historical and contemporary literature on quality using insights of Alfred Whitehead, Pirsig, and John Dewey, urging a vision that is honest and that incorporates caring, imagination, and zest in pursuit of quality.
