About MoQ.Org

MOQ.org is a website for the propagation of Robert M Pirsig’s Metaphysics of Quality. Our objective is to help visitors to this site develop their personal understandings of the metaphysical nature of the universe through study and discourse on the Metaphysics of Quality, related theories and empirical experience.

Historically MOQ.org was home to two mailing lists: 
and  MOQ_focus.
MOQ_discuss is an open, unmoderated forum and, whilst still operational, is currently dormant. This will change!
MOQ_focus was a series of moderated monthly workshops which allowed members to investigate a few key subjects in depth. It is now closed but who knows what the future may bring.
This two-tiered system allowed us to explore a wide range of topics, both in depth and wide-ranging.

The MOQ.org website includes an archive of all posts plus essays and links contributed by our members. We welcome newcomers and invite you to read our charters, FAQ and subscription instructions if you are interested in joining.

MOQ.org is created and administrated by Horse. Feel free to contact me and I will get back to you when I can!



Our vision for the revitalised MoQ.org is to revive the spirit of exploration and discussion of Robert M. Pirsig’s Metaphysics of Quality.


To bring to the world an understanding of the extraordinary and revolutionary system of thought within the Metaphysics of Quality


In the coming weeks and months, MoQ.org will grow and coonsolidate the foundations of thought which inspired the conversations and enquiries from it’s conception in the late 20th century.
