A rather strange, conceptual dialectic links a dissertation written in 1910 and an essaystic novel published in America in 1974. Both authors--the Mittel-European Carlo Michelstaedter and the American R. M. Pirsig--write a powerful negative critique of corrupt scientific endeavors. While their thought is always situated between the quest for the Absolute and its concrete experience in the empirical world, their aporetic, at the same time philosophical and literary, experience, unravels as a negative ontology. The principle--ethical as well as ontological--of Persuasione and of Quality opens and closes in the nineteenth century the adventure of the mystics who find themselves out of place in their tragic clash with the forms of modernity, judged as "inauthentic." Thus Persuasione and Quality symbolize a spiritual angst. Rational and nihilistic, supra-historical and anti-historical all at once, this angst is never unmindful of the ideological relations that govern proteiform kinds of existence. While dialogizing with pre-Socratic philosophers, Socrates and Buddha, and leveling equally strong accusations at conceptual falsifications of Plato and Aristotle, Michelstaedter and Pirsig outline the profile of an individual and a generation engaged in a dramatic debate with the academic system responsible for the trasnferral of knoweldge. **********
