Alan Watts – The Tao of Philosophy
Salepage : Alan Watts – The Tao of Philosophy
What exactly am I? What am I doing here? What is the nature of my surroundings?
Alan Watts (1915–1973), renowned professor, graduate-school dean, Harvard University research fellow, and Episcopal priest, tackles these fundamental problems from a Taoist viewpoint, learning to value not only the bowl but also the empty space within it. He demonstrates our direct connection to the natural world via his down-to-earth words, reminding us that we are not born into this world but develop out of it. This compilation of eight of Watts’ distinctive philosophical articles plus an early piece published in 1953 includes a brief introduction by Alan Watts’ son, Mark Watts, explaining the context of these works and their significance in Alan Watts’ life and career.
