About this item

Here 14 professors from a variety of disciplines explain what their preference for hogs has to do with their studies. After one survives the foreword, which is written by an eloquent man who prints Harley-Davidson t-shirts and rides a bike with a full-size model of a buffalo on the front, one leans into the turns with bikers who describe how suicide machines relate to Zen, Jesus, coffee houses and postmodernism, Marx and Hegel, art, nihilism, freedom as myth and fantasy, aesthetics, film, helmet ethics, Hobbes and Rousseau and their contributions to the paradox of biker identity, fetishism, Foucault, and the dao of riding. All love the open road and most avoid references to Nietzschean bugs in one's teeth. Annotation ©2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
