Episode Description

Alan Watts is best known as an interpreter of Zen Buddhism and of Indian and Chinese philosophy. Through his writing and speaking, he became known as one of the most original philosophers of the 20th century. He was the author of more than 25 books and numerous articles which applied the teachings of Eastern and Western religion and philosophy to our everyday lives. He wrote the first best-seller on Buddhism, The Way of Zen. The critic Erik Davis said: his writings and recorded talks still shimmer with a profound and galvanizing lucidity. Now, we have more insight into the man and his teachings through his personal correspondence with such luminaries as Joseph Campbell, Henry Miller, Carl Jung and Aldous Huxley. Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Gary Snyder said: “he was always a grand and instructive friend to me. Yet it took some years after his death before I could see and appreciate the whole.” Please join us Thursday to learn more about the man and his wisdom from his daughters.
