From Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance to The Motorcycle Diaries, to be a biker is to be on the road to the meaning of life. What would the existentialists have to say about facing death on a bike? Is it true that meditation is easier at high speeds? Can your motorcycle be as much a work of art as a Michelangelo painting? And why is it that bikers are so often political rebels? From contemplation to rebellion, thrill-seeking to a Sunday drive, philosopher and biker Craig Bourne shows for the first time the thoughtful side of the biker, and takes us on a fun and humorous trip through the philosophy of motorcycles. Craig Bourne is a College Lecturer in Philosophy and Fellow of Pembroke College and New Hall, Cambridge. He rides a Ducati.
