The original question was:
"In the MOQ feeling corresponds to biological quality." (Pirsig in the
Copleston annotations). I'd like to suggest we spend a bit of time trying to
work out what "feeling" is, as referred to here, whether it's the same as
"sensation" or "emotion", and if so, whether this analysis stands up to
scrutiny in the light of contemporary understandings in the philosophy of
mind and neuroscience.
There seems to be a fair amount of consensus that Pirsig's comment is fine
as long as a) feeling is distinguished from emotion, and b) it is
distinguished from the 'pure experience' or DQ which is how the primary
reality is accessed. If either of those two points are obscured then we run
into difficulties. Does anyone disagree with that?
