The Writers

Alan Wilson Watts (6 January 1915 – 16 November 1973) was a British-born American philosopher, writer, and speaker, best known as an interpreter and populariser of Eastern philosophy for a Western audience. Born in Chislehurst, England, he moved to the United States in 1938 and began Zen training in New York. Pursuing a career, he attended Seabury-Western Theological Seminary, where he received a master’s degree in theology. Watts became an Episcopal priest in 1945, then left the ministry in 1950 and moved to California, where he joined the faculty of the American Academy of Asian Studies.

‘…Zen is a liberation from time.’
April 3, 2020

I have finally read one of Alan’s books! I’m a big fan of Watts, and have listened to lots of his lectures and audiobooks but have never sat down to read his words rather than listen to them. Even switching formats I couldn’t help but read it in Alan’s voice. I think I picked a good one to start with too, seeing as how packed with information it is. I think half of it would have passed me by had I tried to listen to it instead. And the thing is that as dense as it is it’s rich, and to me endlessly interesting material. This was the kind of book that I found myself highlighting or notating nearly every other page, and I know that revisiting those highlights will be something I do quite often. Not all of it was entirely new material for me, but it’s presented and discussed in that inimitably ‘Alan Watts’ way that offers a clear perspective. And for a book published in 1957 it holds up remarkably well. Zen is–after all–a ‘liberation from time’.

Anyone interested in the history and development of Zen practice (through it’s roots in Taoism and Buddhism) as well as its principles and practice (in natural life and in the arts) should look no further than Alan’s book. He presents ideas that are as frustrating as they are revelatory. The kind of ideas that you must not grasp to grasp. Ones that are grown of spontaneity rather than created by trying. It’s fun to think about, fun to read, and offers plenty for an eventual reread as well. I loved it.

‘Awakening almost necessarily involves a sense of relief because it brings to an end the habitual psychological cramp of trying to grasp the mind with the mind, which in turn generates the ego with all its conflicts and defenses. In time, the sense of relief wears off–but not the awakening, unless one has confused it with the sense of relief and has attempted to exploit it by indulging in ecstasy. Awakening is thus only incidentally pleasant or ecstatic, only at first an experience of intense emotional release. But in itself it is just the ending of an artificial and absurd use of the mind.’

problem with kindle edition
September 11, 2018

This is a seminal work and a great intro to taoism, zen and everything in between and who better to explain it so clearly than Mr. Watts. But stay away from the kindle edition. Half way through the book it starts skipping pages (you can see the page number skipping, not just the obvious text jumps), sections of pages repeating, and text skipping (not page numbers skip but jumps in the text between pages where you don’t know if it dropped a line or how many paragraphs). it seems that no one took the time to proof read it in an actual kindle device.

just buy the printed version and enjoy the feel and smell of paper and ink.

Of those available in English, this is still the outstanding combination of introduction, history and guide to Buddhism. What makes it so memorable – and yes, inspiring – are the elegance and clarity of the writing, the depth of scholarship and breadth of coverage. It is wonderfully readable without ever glossing over the complexity and profundity of the ideas presented or the historical, cultural and linguistic challenges of interpretation and translation. This is a remarkable achievement. One gets the feeling that Alan Watts understood his readership as well as he understood what he was writing about. He was in
