Product Description

From Booklist

Watts is best known as a popular interpreter of Eastern religions, but this collection of edited transcripts of six of his lectures will reintroduce him as a perceptive commentator on Western traditions as well. Of particular relevance to contemporary readers are his discussions of hierarchy, authority, identity, and sexual ethics. As in previous Watts volumes from Tuttle, the oral character of the presentations is preserved in transcription. Readers (particularly those who encounter Watts here for the first time) may find it frustrating that the context and original setting of the lectures are not made explicit; but, frustrated or not, they will find Watts a lively and often provocative partner in reflection on important themes. Steve Schroeder --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars from Iowa June 20 2004
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is an awesome book. I was introduced to Alan Watts' work about a year ago and I have throughly enjoyed his exploration of the eastern and western religious ideas. I was born and raised in both the Hindu and Christian triditions, and it was difficult for me to compare the two religions until Alan Watts came along.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Christianity Trap April 21 2000
By David Teubner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio Cassette
Alan Watts lectured to live audiences during the 1960's and1970's. His talks reveal his view of Christianity and religion andleaves the listener with a keen sense that "I too, am a son of God". With this insight the listener is set free to experience life in its fullest. Alan Watts masterful description of Christianity through a Buddhist point of view is truely illuminating.
