Abstract:

"Alan Watts became famous as a guru of the San Francisco counter-culture of the 1960s. Through his highly influential books, lectures and broadcasts, he was a pioneer in the introduction of Eastern Wisdom to Westerners. He played a crucial part in the movement towards New Age holistic consciousness, and showed thousands of people new ways of seeing themselves and the world around them. This collection of Alan Watts' writings between 1934 and 1956 includes rare material from British and American journals, many of which no longer exist. Covering a wide range of subjects - Zen, Jung, Krishnamurti, G.K. Chesterton, Lao-tzu, Buddha, Krishna - this book offers a fascinating insight into the spiritual development of one of the most significant and controversial spiritual teachers of our time."--Publisher's description.
