Aristotle reading group trivia
My dad noticed my Aristotle book the other day, and pointed out a bit of trivia that I was not aware of. Richard McKeon, editor of the volume, is apparently the U of Chicago professor who was the inspiration for the ‘Chairman’ character in Robert Pirsig’s novel ‘Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance’ (no doubt a contender for the reading odyssey in its own right).
I pulled up an article the UChicago Magazine (http://magazine.uchicago.edu/9412/Feat4.html) that paints a pretty interesting picture of him (certainly prettier than the one painted by Pirsig). You might want to give it a glance.
