Abstract:

Few living philosophers have communicated with as many people as Alan Watts. His books and lectures have reached millions; the clarity and directness of his thought, his honesty and ability to distill the truth in complex ideas, have appealed to scholars and layman alike. Here is one of nine impressive and unique books, the legacy of his lifetime of thought and teaching. Meditation is a way of getting in touch with reality. Between us and truth, Alan Watts said, lie the symbols with which we represent life. But to concentrate on the symbols alone is to know them and not life itself. Thus, he says, "To go out of your mind at least once a day is tremendously important." Through meditation "you come to your sense." In this second in a new series Alan Watts shows how to meditate and why. -- from back cover.
