Product description

Review

The best book I've ever read on the nature of what actually is, what the world is about, and how you should behave. -- John Lloyd ― Desert Island Discs

Offering spiritual answers to the problems of a materialistic lifestyle, alienated from the natural world, Watts is the voice of all who seek a deeper understanding of their own identity and role in the world. ― Watkins Review

No words can describe just how profoundly perspective-shifting The Book: On the Taboo Against Knowing Who You Are is in its entirety, and with what exquisite stickiness it stays with you for a lifetime. ― Brain Pickings

For a new generation of readers... look at this ancient philosophy from a modern counter-cultural standpoint. Alan Watts explores the subject in concrete terms, using current idioms and expressions which will also appeal to the younger reader. -- Vedanta

Offering spiritual answers to the problems of a materialistic lifestyle, alienated from the natural world, Watts is the voice of all who seek a deeper understanding of their own identity and role in the world. -- Watkins Review

Reminds us how Watts presented complex theories and views in a subtle yet straightforward fashion... Still an iconic figure... he made great breakthroughs in stretching our philosophical horizons. -- Beat Scene

About the Author

Alan Watts was a philosopher, academic and theologian, who wrote and spoke widely on Asian philosophy and theology. Central in introducing Eastern philosophical and religious thought to Western readers, he became a Buddhist as a teenager and moved to California in 1951, where he became a counterculture icon and one of the best-known writers of the 1960's and 1970's. He was the author of more than twenty books on the philosophy and psychology of religion including Behold the Spirit, The Way of Zen, and Cloud-Hidden, Whereabouts Unknown: A Mountain Journal. He died in 1973.
