Harley-Davidson and Philosophy: Full-throttle Aristotle
This is a humorous investigation into the unlikely, yet very real connections between the likes of Marx and Foucault and one of the legendary symbols of outlaw individualism. Harley-Davidson Riders Club Great Britain is the oldest in the world, it was formed in 1948 and has a membership of 1,500 nationwide. In Harley-Davidson and Philosophy words like Sturgis, Hollister, and panhead share the page with philosophical giants such as Marx, Hobbes and Socrates. Fourteen philosopher/bikers set out their thoughts in a series of essays, combining humour and philosophical introspection. This book offers a celebrator appreciation of the aesthetics of Harleys, the Zen journey of the endless highway and the direct approach that bikers confront situations, with slogans such as F*** The World. Melding bikers recollections with philosophical speculation, this book is a perfect gift for the bike enthusiast, the philosophically inquisitive and anyone with a brain and a sense of humour.
